Title: ●Pest and Disease Revolving Loan Fund 
Abstract: The Forest Service is proposing to amend 36 CFR part 230 to provide direction on implementing the Pest and Disease Revolving Loan Fund as authorized in the 2008 Farm Bill (Pub. L. 110-234, sec. 10205), which authorizes loans to eligible units of local governments to finance purchases of authorized equipment to monitor, remove, dispose of, and replace infested trees in quarantine areas. The proposed changes amend part 230, State and Private Forestry Assistance by adding a new subpart. Currently, there are no Forest Service rules or regulations on providing low interest loans to local municipalities to help them manage their insect and disease infested trees; the proposed rules will provide that direction.
