Don't ax federal aid to Kentucky's forest owners

Right now, Congress is deciding the fate of Farm Bill conservation programs. Some federal deficit reductions are likely to come from conservation programs that help family forest owners. I realize that we can't be immune to what needs to be done to get our national deficit under control. It's important, though, to be sure that conservation programs don't take an unfair hit at the chopping block.
