AMERICAN FOREST RESOURCE ALLIANCE DIRECTOR ISSUES STATEMENT

 AMERICAN FOREST RESOURCE ALLIANCE DIRECTOR ISSUES STATEMENT
 PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The following statement was issued today by Mark Rey, American Forest Resource Alliance (AFRA) executive director, in response to the issuance of a temporary injunction against the Bureau of Land Management timber sale program:
 "The dark forces of economic stagnation scored another victory today by securing a crippling injunction that will counter national efforts to escape the recession through increased housing production.
 "President Bush told the nation last month that real estate traditionally leads the country out of a recession, but unfortunately special interest lawyers are bound and determined to continue the widespread economic misery.
 "Congress can no longer merely blame the administration and dismiss its responsibility to pass a long-term solution to the timber availability crisis just because it is an election year.
 "Today's decision is just one more tell-tale sign that special interest leaders will settle for nothing less than total abolition of the timber sale program.
 "Congress must immediately approve the Forests and Families Protection Act -- regardless of election-year considerations -- in direct response to the scorched earth offensive against forest families, school children, counties and state operations throughout the region."
