Tester speaks to forest bill failure

Posted By on Mon, Dec 20, 2010 at 5:30 PM

Despite his failed attempt to pass a renamed version of his Forest Jobs and Recreation Act through Congress as part of a $1.2 trillion omnibus appropriations bill, Sen. Jon Tester apparently has no intention of giving up on his controversial piece of wilderness legislation. Senate Democrats shelved their 1,924 page spending bill last week when it became clear that Republicans weren't going to play ball. But Tester preferred to remain optimistic with his congressional colleagues this Saturday, promising that "we will continue to work to get this bill passed."
