* On October 30, 2000, (Public Law 106-393), H.R. 2389, the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000 (Act) was signed into law by the President.  This legislation ends rural communities’ historic dependence on timber sale receipts to finance school and road construction. 

 

Counties will have the option of continuing to receive payments under the 25 Percent Fund Act, or electing to receive their share of the average of the three highest 25 percent payments made to the state during the period of fiscal year 1986 through fiscal year 1999 (the full payment amount).

 

Counties that elect to receive their full payment amount and would receive $100,000 or more, are required to reserve no less than 15 and no more than 20 percent of their distribution for forest restoration, maintenance or stewardship projects under Title II of the Act (Title II special projects), county projects under Title III (Title III projects) or both.  The Act requires that consensus-based Resource Advisory Committees (RACs) be formed to recommend special projects funded under the Act.  These committees are to be balanced and diverse with equal representation from industry, environmental groups and local people.  The appointments to the RACs are to be made within 180 days of the law’s enactment.
