Bill Aims to Spur Wood Building Boom
http://www.agriculture.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Timber%20Innovation...
“Wood construction is a winner for our rural economies and for our environment,” co-sponsor Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) said in a statement. “Our bill helps drive a new market for forest products—keeping loggers at work in the woods and helping to sustain rural communities. At the same time, using wood for construction reduces carbon pollution and gives private landowners an economic incentive to keep their land forested, instead of parceling it up for development.”
The act states: “Mass timber buildings, due to thick, solid wood panels of which the buildings are composed, are slow to burn and have inherent fire resistance that, under many configurations, establishes a performance equal to or better than other construction materials, allowing mass timber to be used appropriately for buildings that are significantly taller and larger than traditional wood buildings.”
