June 29th, a one year extension of the Secure Rural Schools and Communities Act was included in the Transportation Bill passed by both branches of Congress.  Press releases and comments from both the House and the Senate indicated that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Speaker John Boehner were personally involved in the final stages of negotiating an agreement among conferees.  The bill now moves to the President for signature hopefully next week.  The bill includes $346 Million for a one year extension of SRSCA Titles I,II, and III.  This is 95% of the 2011 funding level.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year from the Board of Directors and staff of the National Forest Counties and Schools Coalition.  At the NFCSC it has been a year of challenges both fiscally and legislatively, but we are still alive and moving forward with our mission.  We have much to be thankful for and much to look forward to in our collective future.
