Noem in Hills lobbying for Wyoming donor

US Representative Kristi Noem (earth hater-SD) was in Rapid City leaning on Forest Service officials to keep Hulett, Wyoming donor Jim Neiman happy.

Despite the success of the mountain pine beetle in thinning ponderosa pine the Service reminded small government Noem mechanical treatment costs about $400 an acre. The Black Hills National Forest is planning prescribed burning on 100,000 acres but Neiman dupes are balking.
The Timber Committee expressed concern regarding the amount of overstory mortality that has occurred in some recent prescribed burns. A concern also exists concerning the use of prescribed burning to kill pine regeneration, as any fire in the Black Hills introduces inherent risks.
Read the rest here.

Even though Kristi Noem voted for a bill that helps her earth hater donors like Hulett, Wyoming-based Neiman Enterprises it's unlikely the so-called "Resilient Federal Forests Act" will ever see action in the US Senate.

Democrats are blasting the lack of bipartisanship in the GOP-driven bill.

Deadwood recently received a federal grant to reduce wildfire risk.

Socialized livestock grazing and socialized timber harvest are GOP hypocrisy writ large.
