Thank you for a thoughtful and well-written column. It cuts through the nonsense being written and posted by no-compromise critics, and artfully reflects why the bill is already enjoying broad support reflected in editorials and letters published in newspapers across the state.
Montanans are hungry for solutions to address the problems plaguing out forests and only by working together are we going to make any progress.
I applaud Senator Tester for introducing his Forest Jobs bill. Montana and timber workers in my community will benefit from his leadership.
Mr. Ochenski doesn't understand his article contains the same tired old rant from the no-compromise crowd that Montanans are rejecting.
I applaud the individuals who sat down together from the Yaak to the Beaverhead-Deerldoge and worked out draft proposals that will benefit Montana's forests. They showed great courage, common sense, and a willingness work with fellow Montanans for the greater good of my home state.
Senator Tester recognized this effort represents the best of Montana, and I applaud him for introducing the Forest Jobs bill.
