Secure Rural Schools

On October 3, 2008 the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000 (SRS Act) was amended and reauthorized in P.L. 110-343. This law ensures that for the next four years (2008 –2011), counties across the country can continue to count on stable and transition payments that provide funding for schools and roads, make additional investments in projects that enhance forest ecosystems, and improve cooperative relationships. With notable exceptions, the SRS Act, as amended, is similar to the original Secure Rural Schools program. The structure and significant elements of Title I have been amended but Titles II and III remain intact with few changes.
