New Forest Service chief vows quick spending of stimulus money

New Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell says he will move quickly to ensure that his agency spends its $1.15 billion share of federal economic stimulus funding. The Forest Service has spent $643 million of its stimulus money so far, including $228 million in projects announced this month to repair forest roads and bridges in 31 states. Tidwell said even more projects should be approved in coming weeks...AP

Whew, I was so afraid they wouldn't get it all spent.

I wonder how much is being spent on range improvements?

It is probably going to be spent gathering cattle and sending them out of state to be sold . . . like they did with Kit Laney.
