Correction to March 18 story on wildfire funding

WASHINGTON – A March 18 Cronkite News story on a hearing on the U.S. Forest Service budget incorrectly characterized Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell’s position on a Senate bill on wildfire funding. The service does not have a position on the bill, but Tidwell said he appreciates the effort by the senators and that the service wants to continue to work with Congress to find a solution to the funding problems. The story here has been updated to reflect the correct information.
