Bennet’s drought, forest health provisions signed into law

Farm bill includes provisions to address Colorado’s needs
The Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018, known as the farm bill, included forestry and drought legislation, which both had several provisions written by Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo. The farm bill will reauthorize the National Forest Foundation and double funding for the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program in an effort to improve forest health and reduce wildfire risk after Colorado experienced one of its worst wildfire seasons this year, including the 416 Fire.
