3. VO: In Montana, too many of our sawmills are shuttered, too many families are out of work. Our forests are turning red from runaway beetle attack. And without protection, our clean water and favorite places to hike, hunt and fish are at risk.
5. VO: But we can do something about it
7. VO: Montanans depend on our National Forests for jobs, clean water and our outdoor way of life. And we deserve a voice in the future of our public lands. That’s why Montanans from all walks of life have been working together to form a new path.
8. It’s called the Forest Jobs and Recreation Act
9. And here in this state, the timber industry continues to support almost 7,000 jobs and generated $314 million in sales last year.
10. Through the Forest Jobs and Recreation Act, hundreds of timber jobs will be stabilized and hundreds more will be created with projects on the Beaverhead-Deerlodge and Lolo National Forests.
11. This bill puts Montanans back to work in the woods by providing an immediate and predictable flow of timber to support local mills and the infrastructure they rely on. Restoring watersheds, reducing the risk of wildfire, cleaning up beetle kill and maintaining trails and campgrounds are not just ways to protect our outdoor heritage- but will help to restore economic and forest health.
12. In fact, FJRA prioritizes stewardship contracting, keeping timber sale receipts in state to benefit not only Montana communities, but also our fish and wildlife.
13. It’s also a place that brims with clean water and quiet beauty. Even through tough economic times, our wildlands support nearly 40,000 jobs across the state.
14. Forest Jobs and Recreation Act ensures thousands of trail miles for backcountry access and maintains nearly 6000 miles of motorized roads and trails to get Montanans into their favorite places.
15. It permanently protects bicycle access to more than 500 miles of trails in the Pioneers, Flints and on the Continental Divide
16. Places that embody our wilderness heritage like the headwaters of Rock Creek, the Italian Peaks, the Pioneers, and the rugged lower Swan Range would be protected just as they are today.
17. MONTANA IS LEGENDARY COUNTRY FOR BULL ELK AND BIG TROUT. And Montana hunters and anglers know wildlife need wild places in order thrive.
18. FJRA protects and maintains access to 700,000 acres of security habitat. It covers some of Montana’s most productive hunting and fishing grounds and ensures that our outdoor heritage, and a way of life, continues for generations to come.
19. HERE IN MONTANA, WE KNOW WHAT IT TAKES TO GET THINGS DONE.
20. Working together and doing what’s best for our forests and those who live, work and play there isn’t a partisan issue.
21. MONTANANS REFUSING TO PLAY POLITICS AS USUAL to provide jobs, protect clean water and take better care of our forests. That’s what the Forest Jobs and Recreation Act is all about.
22. OUR FORESTS AND OUR COMMUNITIES NEED A SOLUTION.
23. It’s time to stand for Montana.
24, Become a citizen co-sponsor today and tell members of our congressional delegation to pass Forest Jobs and Recreation Act now.
