CFA UPDATE FROM PETE BAILEY

NFH Board members and Ambassadors

And all C2 participants and contacts

 

Due to scheduling conflicts in the Senate, the hearing for The Cabin Fee Act, S. 1341 that was scheduled for yesterday October 30, 2013 in the Senate Energy & Natural Resource (ENR) Subcommittee on Public Lands, Forests and Mining has been postponed.  The hearing is now scheduled for the morning of November 20th, 2013.  Though this is another small disappointment, NFH and

C2 continue efforts striving for passage this year.

 

We continue to press Chairman Ron Wyden (D-OR) to move the bill, as drafted, through the ENR this year, because relief is urgently needed for many folks, now.  The Congressional Budget Office has been asked for an informal revenue evaluation of S.1341, which we believe new data supports as revenue neutral.

Discussions with ENR committee members and staff are also occurring.  We remain resolute, but may need your help in a last minute grassroots push, so please stay engaged.
