    National forests in Oregon are cutting 6% of their annual growth while counties struggle to survive. Rational management by the U.S. Forest Service would solve the problem.

    “For the fourth time since 2012, voters in Josephine County have rejected a tax increase to restore cuts in law enforcement …” http://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/news/politics/2015/05/20/josephine-county-voters-again-reject-public-safety-tax/27650507/

    If Josephine County refuses to pay for their own services, then why should taxpayers in other counties pay, when they won’t receive direct benefits?
