Description

Robert Wolf describes past attempts at reorganizing the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. He recalls how President Richard Nixon attempt to reorganize both offices by readjusting regional Forest Service Boundaries to align within ten proposed regions. Wolf tells how Senators Mike Mansfield, Alan Bible, and Herman Talmadge were instrumentals in preventing this reorganization. Wolf also describes how President Jimmy Carter attempt to form a Department of Natural Resources, a change that also met with senatorial opposition. Wolf concludes by discussing Senator Mike Mansfield’s priorities on a broader scale.
