Today the legislature passed California’s State Budget but the Timber Harvest Plan (THP) Reform Package must still be voted on by the Senate and Assembly. The THP Reform Package got an 11-0 vote from the Senate Budget Committee moving the package forward for another vote very soon.
As the THP Package moves along lets hope the legislature invests in California’s renewable resource –Lumber – that will put Californians back to work and help get our economy back on track. Our mission should be to bring jobs back to our state while keeping true to our tradition of tough environmental protections. California can produce wood and protect the environment. The THP Reform Package is a positive reform for California’s Timber Harvest Plans.
