The Secure Rural Schools legislation was not authorized and funded. Without SRS the law reverts to the 1908 shared receipts formula. The payments under the 1908 law are a small percentage of the SRS payment and all the funding is for roads and schools. The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest Resource Advisory Committee is authorized through 2016, but will be in inactive status, until SRS is reauthorized. Individuals are being sought to represent a variety of interests on the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest Resource Advisory Committee (RAC).

Starting in mid-September, a DWR biologist will visit an established pika area above Brighton ski resort to check on population growth.
