S1253, 'the Craig bill', seeks to address complaints about the planning process used by the USDA Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Its sponsor, Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID), intends that it would promote stability in timber towns, put limits on administrative appeals of plans, and clarify the compliance of forest management activities with environmental laws. The bill also provides that the president's appointment of chief of the Forest Service would be confirmed by the Senate.
