Rep. LaMalfa Introduces RESTORE Act to Improve Forest Health, Mitigate Wildfire Risk
Rep. Doug LaMalfa (CA-01)
Energy Innovation Agenda: Clean Energy Infrastructure
Bill: HR 2612, Restoring Environments, Soils, Trees, and Operations to develop the Rural Economy (RESTORE Act)
Our forests are in desperate need of more active management to prevent wildfires and promote forest health, Rep. LaMalfa says. We can’t rely on our forests to sequester carbon if we don’t allow appropriate management, using the best available techniques and technology. Coming off one of the worst wildfire years on record, with over 58,000 fires and some 10.3 million acres burned, it is clear we need to take more aggressive actions to prevent fires. That’s just what his legislation will do.
