(Salem, OR) — Governor Kitzhaber today released the following statement in response to new legislation being proposed by Senator Wyden on the management of O&C lands in Oregon:
"Thanks to Chairman Wyden for his strong leadership on one of the most intractable natural resources issues facing our state. I am pleased that the Senator’s bill incorporates and improves on the many concepts that Oregonians and I believe are required for long-term solutions to the O&C issue. I look forward to assisting the Chairman, Ranking Member DeFazio, and Congressmen Walden and Schrader in their efforts to pass legislation in 2014."
