Chairman Hastings Follow-up Letters to Director Mathews Burwell, Secretary Vilsack, and Chief Tidwell Regarding Decision Making on the Secure Rural Schools Program


WASHINGTON, D.C., July 18, 2013 -

Dear Director Mathews Burwell, Secretary Vilsack, and Chief Tidwell:

A letter was sent to the Office of Management and Budget ("OMB") on May 20, 2013 requesting information about the Forest Service's ("Service") decision demanding that states repay Secure Rural Schools Program ("SRS") funds. OMB missed the Committee's June 3, 2013 deadline for response.

The original letter sought responses to two questions seeking information, communications and documents pertaining to OMB's advice provided to the Service on the retroactive sequestering of the SRS funds. These responses should have been easy for OMB to provide without delay.

Read the entire letter HERE.
