Entry Title Date
Waiving Requirement Of Clause 6(A) Of Rule Xiii With Respect To Consideration Of Certain Resolutions Reported From The Committee On Rules, And Providing For Consideration Of Motions To Suspend The… August 1, 2014
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"There were 236 new fires started in the Western United States last night. There are 31 large fires that are uncontained. And the Forest Service and the BLM are running out of money. In the Senate bill—which, granted, it didn’t pass—but in the President’s proposal was emergency firefighting money. But somehow, the Republicans here don’t think those fires are an emergency and they don’t care about the loss of resources, the potential loss of life, and the loss of property that is going to result."
H.R. 4315, The 21St Century Endangered Species Transparency Act August 1, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"While framed as a way to roll back red tape, this bill instead creates additional layers of bureaucracy through burdensome and unnecessary reporting requirements on the details of all ESA lawsuit expenditures made by the Department of Interior, the Forest Service, the National Marine Fisheries Service, and the Bonneville, Western Area, Southwestern and Southeastern Power Administrations. Given that our federal agencies are already resource-constrained, these requirements will only distract from the charge to protect threatened and endangered species."
21St Century Endangered Species Transparency Act July 29, 2014
Peter DeFazio, D-OR
"So I wish we would return to a bipartisan addressing of the forest fire issue because I know there is bipartisan concern on it. There is a bill pending in the House—54 Republicans, 54 Democrats. We should take that bill up today, tomorrow, or Thursday before we leave town and fund our firefighting efforts."

Tammy Baldwin, D-WI
"In Wisconsin, over 50,000 people are employed in the forest products industry, from jobs in forestry and logging to paper makers in the State’s many mills. The industry pays over $3 billion in wages into the State’s economy and ships products worth over $17 billion each year."
Tribute To Dennis Jaeger July 24, 2014
Tim Johnson, D-SD
"There have been a number of key accomplishments on the Black Hills National Forest that Jaeger has helped facilitate, including guiding the successful merger of the Tribal Youth Natural Resources Crew with the Boxelder Job Corps Center Crew to become the Youth Natural Resources, YNR, Crew. The YNR Crew is much better organized, provides unique work training and education, remains very diverse and productive, and improves the land. The YNR Crew received a Regional Forester’s Honor Award in 2013. Dennis, as a key member of the Forest Leadership Team, helps guide one of the largest forest restoration programs in the United States. The Black Hills Forest received the Regional Forester’s Honor Award for its timber program in 2013 and the Chief’s Honor Award in 2013 for its Mountain Pine Beetle Response Project."
