Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2019
This bill revises provisions regarding certain forest management activities conducted by the Department of Agriculture or the Department of the Interior.

For certain forest management activities, including those developed through a collaborative process, an environmental review may compare the impact of the proposed activity only to the impact of taking no action.
