2/23/2024 MEDIA ADVISORY: Forest Management Commission meeting postponed
STATE HOUSE – A meeting of the Special Legislative Commission to Evaluate and Provide Recommendations on Proper Forest Management for Fire Prevention that was scheduled for Monday, Feb. 26, has been postponed to a date to be determined.

Rep. Megan L. Cotter (D-Dist. 39, Exeter, Richmond, Hopkinton) chairs the commission, which was created by a resolution she introduced shortly after the mid-April wildfire that scorched hundreds of acres at the Queen’s River Preserve in Exeter, the largest forest fire in Rhode Island since 1942. The 12-member special legislation commission is evaluating and will provide recommendations on proper forest management for fire prevention in Rhode Island.
