Yesterday, Congress held a hearing on several proposed bills, one of those was Senator Wyden’s Oregon and California Lands Act of 2015. Senator Wyden has continued to show leadership in Congress, especially with his balanced framework for legislation to resolve the Oregon and California (O&C) timberlands management issue. Finding the right balance is the key to Oregon’s future economic growth and I believe Senator Wyden’s legislation on O&C lands is an important step in the right direction.
All Oregonians know that we boast many more than Seven Wonders in our beautiful state. Thank you to Senator Wyden for understanding the connection between public lands and waters, recreation and business. We look forward to continuing our work to safeguard even more of Oregon in the future, including key headwater wilderness and stretches of rivers throughout the O&C Lands.Read more blog posts
