Current federal land management policies need revisiting, says Idaho Governor Butch Otter. Logging and grazing help to prevent wildfires and bolster economic growth.

As quoted in The Spokesman-Review, Otter’s guest opinion sent to Idaho newspapers read, ““And while our exceptional firefighters put their lives on the line, the challenges they face on the ground are aggravated by litigious single-interest environmental groups devoted to economically undermining such traditional industries as ranching and forest products.”
