(This amendment provides $98,393 the second year from the general fund to support an additional position at the Department of Forestry to support economic development services to the forest products industry. In particular, the additional resource analyst would promote the vitality and growth of the sector by identifying potential markets for underutilized products, such as residual by-products from manufacturing options, conducting additional analysis on the forest products tax data, and working with the U.S. Forest Service to increase forest management and harvesting on federal lands.)
