So in effect. There will be a higher risk of forest fires, due to a lack of Land Management.

The risk won't change since the rule already is in effect. Land management will continue as it has. What continues to be stopped is logging.

It's true; stripping the land bare does have a positive effect on wildfire potential.

Always seems that people want us to use renewable resources but cry when other people try to harvest renewable resources. Trees are renewable, harvesting trees provides jobs, resources to build houses. It is far better to allow controlled harvesting than uncontrolled forest fires. Regardless, nature will backfill the area anew.

That is true. But since the land hasn't been stripped (because the law has already been in effect for years), then no one is suddenly changing the landscape. It remains as it has been - therefore no change to risk. [emoticon]
