Eye On Boise

Western Govs turn to forest health

Forest health is the first topic for the Western Governors Association this morning. “We have had some problems in being able to afford to do things that we need to do in order to have healthy forests and manage healthy forests,” Idaho Gov. Butch Otter told the group. “Federal agencies need to be good neighbors, they need to work with the states.” Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber will lead the discussion; panelists include Washington Congressman Doc Hastings, chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee; Harris Sherman, undersecretary of agriculture for natural resources and the environment; and David Groeschl, administrator of the Idaho Forestry and Fire Division.
