We don’t let national policy uproot the heritage of private land ownership.
Every year, Congress debates hundreds of pieces of legislation with the potential to enhance or diminish forest landowners’ rights to manage their land. One misguided bill or regulation could do long-term harm to your resources, your profitability and your management rights.
That’s why the FLA works in Washington, D.C. and state capitals, relentlessly scoping the political landscape for issues that could adversely affect private forest landowners.
The political landscape looms large in the future of emerging markets for forests. It is crucial for forest landowners to make sure their voice is heard among policy makers.
As a member of FLA, you can make a difference through involvement in policy advocacy. It is important that policy makers understand that FLA has thousands of private forest landowners behind its messages.
Political Action Committee contributions make a significant difference. FLA-PAC contributions give us access to the decision makers in Washington, DC, which is crucial firepower that ensures that private forest landowners are protected at the highest levels of government.
