With the federal Resilient Federal Forests Act introduced this week with the support of more than 70 bipartisan Members of Congress and over 85 organizations, California Congressman Doug LaMalfa stressed that California is a poster-child for what not to do – little to no forest management, and illegal marijuana grows in those forests and rural areas. “Communities across the West are being devastated by wildfires and there will be long-term negative impacts to our forests, our water quality, and wildlife habitat,” LaMalfa said. He noted that it is Republicans in Congress proposing solutions to help prevent the catastrophic wildfires California experiences annually now. He also said Democrat leadership has been ignoring this issue.

What are the odds that poor forestry management in California is a deliberate policy by corrupt Newsome and bureaucrats to hide marijuana activities?
Ya, California is restricting water to the rest of agriculture, but the highly taxed weed gets all the water it needs.
Wait until timber prices quadruple in about another year-—we are burning down our plywood & framing lumber.
The lefty California media has been labeling LaMalfa a racist because all of the illegal greenhouses are operated by Hmong or Chinese growers
I met LaMalfa once about a decade ago and had a nice discussion with him. Seems like an ultra-rare politician who’s a genuinely good guy.
They steal the water
He was my Congressman, until they gerrymandered me out of his district!
Talk about PISSED OFF!
Now all I got is some COASTAL QUEER!
Surprised there is a timber industry in California.
Are you referring to Garrimendi? He’s been my Congressman since the last gerrymander. Although he does have a challenger now. And good for Dougie whom my wife used to babysit at their rice farm in Richvale, CA.
