September House agenda includes two Oregon bills

The U.S. House of Representatives will vote this month on two pieces of legislation championed by Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) that would reform federal forest policy and bring more water and power to Crook County for job creation. According to an article in this morning’s Bulletin, “Both of the Oregon-related bills passed the House in 2013, but have not been taken up by the Democrat-controlled Senate.” (read the full article below).

“These bipartisan bills will help grow Oregon’s rural economy, improve forest health, prevent wildfire, and bring more water and power to Central Oregon for job creation. They have both passed the U.S. House previously with strong support, and the House will pass them again to underscore how important these bills are to Oregon. The U.S. Senate should pass them right away to bring much needed jobs to Oregon’s rural communities,” Walden said.
