Forset Service to Drop Most Fees

The US Forest Service has decided to return free access to most national forest lands. The Los Angeles Times reports that the Forest Service plans to eliminate the fees for three fourths of the forest areas where they are now imposed.

The fees have been controversial ever since they were adopted in a demonstration program in 1996. Liberals said they kept poor families from public lands and Conservatives said the charges amounted to double taxation.

A recent Federal Appeals Court decision may force the Forest Service to cut the fee program even more. The judges ruled that parking fees in Arizona’s Coronado National Forest were improper. They sent the case back to a lower court for further consideration.

The Forest Service does plan to continue charging for the use of certain busy sites that are equipped with amenities such as toilets, trash cans and picnic tables.

Copper Company Wants to Expand Miners' Shifts to 12 Hours

Resolution Copper Company is urging Arizona lawmakers to allow miners who work underground to be scheduled for shifts up to 12 hours. Current state law limits underground miners to eight hour shifts.

A representative of Resolution Copper told the House Employment and Regulatory Affairs Committee that operations in other states that increased the limits to 12 hours have seen decreases in time lost to injuries. Adam Hawkins also said that workers have found that they prefer this because it means less time commuting and more time at home.

The bill would also remove language from state law declaring that employment in underground mining is “injurious to health and dangerous to life and limb.”

Cronkite News Service reports that the bill has already been approved by the Arizona Senate. It now goes to the House floor.
