By Dan Happel and Kathleen Marquardt, 1/3/2010 - Senator Jon Tester of Montana introduced S. 1470 in July, known as the “Forest Jobs and Recreation Act of 2009.” Regretfully the first two words of the title of the Bill, “Destruction of”, were left off. We must keep in mind that Tester’s Forest Jobs and Recreation Act of 2009 is not about jobs or recreation; it is about removing Montanans from Montana.
