Subject: E, allowable bending and allowable horiz. shear for #2 hem-fir KD

I think this is an easy one, but who knows these days.  I seem to recall
that the allowable bending stress of wood has been reduced in recent years
and I thought I heard it had something to do with the way forests are
managed to grow trees faster and then the growth rings are wider (I might
have this wrong).  But anyway, I don't have a current NDS so what I would
like to know is: What is the current allowable bending stress (Fb),
allowable horizontal shear stress (Fv) and modulus of elasticity (E) for #2
hem-fir KD 15% (2x6's through 2x12's).   Is this information available on
the web? 
Thanks for your help.
