Timber Innovation Act legislation
http://www.softwoodlumberboard.org/news/timber-innovation-act-legis...
Proposed legislation, the “Timber Innovation Act,” was introduced yesterday that would help accelerate research and development – and ultimately construction – of wood building in the United States. The SLB, as a USDA research and promotion program, was not involved in the preparation or introduction of this legislation, but we wanted you to know that this legislation would focus on finding innovative ways to use wood in the construction of buildings above 85 feet in height or roughly seven or more stories. Introduced by Senators Debbie Stabenow and Mike Crapo, the legislation would incentivize investment through the National Forest Products Lab and American universities to conduct research and develop new methods for the construction of wood buildings.
