They spent four days and three nights in Desolation Wilderness outside of South Lake Tahoe. A bill sponsored by Assemblyman Brian Dahle, - R-Bieber, to allow foresters to replant their land based on the best modern science, instead of antiquated 1970s-era stocking standards, has been signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown. Assembly Bill 2082 authorizes the Board of Forestry to set stocking standards based on the specific landscape and species needs, and taking into account the vastly improved survival rates of today's seedlings. The current one-size-fits:all stocking standard -- 300 trees per acre for most forests -- in just a few years creates hazardous fire traps that require costly pre-commercial thinning by landowners. The standard made sense when it was first enacted, as half of seedlings commonly died. Improved seed stock and planting techniques, however, mean it's common for 90 percent of seedlings to thrive and grow into trees. "This law won't end ill landowners' obligation to replant their forests as part of a timber harvest plan," Dahle said, "but it will give the experts at the Board of Forestry the ability to craft restocking plans that are more efficient and make ecological sense." AB 2082 passed the Legislature earlier this month, and the governor announced Tuesday night that he had signed it into law. Brown has also signed Dahle's Assembly Bill 2112. The law fixes the Public Resources Code to allow landowners more time to extend timber harvest plans. The law previously allowed no more than a 30-day window for filing notice to extend timber harvest plans, leaving landowners at great risk of having their plans -- which can easily cost $30,000 to $40,000 to complete -- expire and need to be rewritten simply because of trivial paperwork oversights. The law now allows a 140-day window to ask for an extension. BUDG ET, from page 1A began working with the county three years ago.

She is working with the state controller's office to determine precisely how the , funds should be divided. Scarlett said that when the money is disbursed, the county's share should be about $1 million. "It's one-time money," she reiterated during the interview. "Certainly don't want to advocate for wages, but we have one-time, capital improvements," Board Chairman Jon Kennedy said during the meeting, of how the money could be spent. Scarlett suggested that the supervisors could "almost do a separate budget workshop when the money is released." In addition to the public safety departments, the supervisors also reviewed budgets from the farm advisor, library/literacy, senior nutrition and transportation, veterans services, office of emergency services and environmental health, engineering, flood control and general services. While many of the budgets included all of the necessary information, the library, literacy and probation budgets were among those that needed additional work. The county auditor and budget consultant will continue to work with those departments in advance of the next meeting.
