Getting across the message that many people in the West aren't pleased with the Sierra Nevada Framework was a major goal. According to Coates, people in the East believed the West was perfectly happy with the plan. Coates' message back is that it's a plan he doesn't like and doesn't support.

That program has had se- rious cutbacks, and was forced to seal the boxe until the be- ginning of the new fiscal year. Then, the organization would have the staffing in place to tackle the information. Key points Coates said a number of key items came from the trip: To to push for a fast appeal on the Sierra Nevada Framework; A recommendation to attach such plans to the Department of Agriculture and not leave it in the hands of the Forest Ser- vice. That concept was "wel- comed by many," he said; and .Third is working toward a na- tional fire plan Coates said, "We're pretty impressed with the Forest Service" for recog- nizing the fire problems in the West. And, if it isn't handled in the next 15 years, the West will be lost to wildland fires. This is the year of the na- tional fire plan, and it fits in with the QLG plan, Coates said.
