Field burning ban moves in late Legislature

By Oregon Farm Bureau,

The field burning ban bill moved out of the Natural Resources Ways and Means SubCommittee.  The bill was amended to preserve the tool for the Silverton hills, however it allows the Environmental Quality Commission to prohibit field burning by rule.  We are aware of some legislators who were opposing the bill are now supporting the bill.
