FOREST SERVICE MAKES INTERIM PAYMENTS TO STATES

WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 -- Interim and estimated fiscal 2000 payments for each receiving state are listed in the following table.

The 2000 interim payments do not reflect national grasslands revenues, which are calculated on a calendar year basis. These funds are paid to states in the spring.

The Forest Service pays 25 percent of its revenues collected from timber sales, grazing, recreation, minerals and land uses to states in which national forest lands are located. The funds are used to finance public schools and roads. Last year, the states received total payments of more than $208 million.
