US Senate OKs logging road subsidies in Alaska's Tongass Forest

Date : 30th June 2005, Source : ENS



WASHINGTON, DC, June 30, 2005 (ENS) - The Senate on Wednesday rejected a proposal to ban federal subsidies for new logging roads in Alaska's Tongass National Forest. It is the largest U.S. national forest and the largest remaining temperate rainforest on Earth. Proponents of the measure said it would strike a blow for fiscal responsibility. The U.S. Forest Service spent $48 million on Tongass logging subsidies last year, but earned a return of less than $800,000.
