Forest-practices hearing: The state Forest Practices Board will conduct a public hearing on Wednesday in Olympia about a proposed rule that would allow the state Department of Natural Resources to request specific geologic information regarding logging on or near potentially unstable slopes.
The rule would formalize a policy of added scrutiny DNR has followed since May and is slated for final action in February. The text of the proposed rule is online at 1.usa.gov/1BCyf1I.
The hearing is scheduled for 4 p.m. Wednesday in the Natural Resources Building, 1111 Washington St. SE in Olympia. The public is also invited to submit written comments by Thursday to email@example.com.
