A US Senate panel heard Senator Jon Tester’s Forest Jobs and Recreation Act as part of a dozen public lands bills in a hearing Tuesday.

Tester said, “For more than 30 years, everybody has been losing on our national forests. This Forest Jobs and Recreation Act is the product of a lot of diverse interests working together…”

The bill sets plans for timber harvests, fire fuels reduction and wilderness. There has been criticism on the logging and the wilderness sections of the act.

The hearing also heard the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act from Senator Max Baucus.

The committee has not yet set a date to vote on the bills.
