Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Committee of State Foresters provides advice on the administration of the cooperative assistance programs authorized by the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of 1978. The Committee specifically addresses planning, budgeting, fire control, insect and disease control, and cooperative forest management on state and private forest lands. Through an annual meeting, the Committee helps determine the equitable allocation of financial and technical assistance to the various state forestry agencies.
How is membership balanced?*The membership consists of the Executive Committee of the National Association of State Foresters, as directed by the enabling legislation. The Executive Committee is selected by the National Association of State Foresters members and includes representatives from three geographic sub-groups of State Foresters.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Committee meets at least once a year on the administration of Cooperative Forestry Assistance programs of the Forest Service.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Committee represents the Nation's State Foresters and provides valuable advice to the Secretary of Agriculture and to the Forest Service in the management of state and private forestry programs. There is no other group or mechanism to provide this advice. The continuance of the Committee is mandated but compliance with the provisions of FACA is no longer required as per Section 204 of Unfunded Mandates Act of 1995, 2 U.C.S.1534 because the Committee is composed of State officials and serves as a mechanism for States to provide input on Federal programs.
