Unemployed South Dakotan lumberjacks: Good News!

Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, Democrat, of South Dakota slipped in a little amendment on a piece of legislation exempting his state from environmental regulations and court action so forest experts can thin out trees and avoid forest fires.
Two questions:
1) Won’t this interfere with the mule deer herd, just like drilling on 200 acres of multi-million-acre ANWAR would interfere with caribou breeding?
2) Does South Dakota have forests?
