Oregon Wild Campaigns Against Clearcuts
Congress returns to business today, and a key item of business for the region is up for consideration. Members of Congress from both parties in Oregon support a plan to divide the former O & C lands managed by the federal government, with a portion managed intensively for timber (and county revenue). Opponents are mounting a campaign against the measure, under the banner "Oregon Home of the Clearcut."
