Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) will hold a town hall on Sunday, February 9, at 12:30 PM at the Anne Basker Auditorium in Grants Pass.
Please be sure to attend to let Senator Wyden know how strongly we in Josephine County oppose his O&C Land Grants Act of 2013, which will not only reduce timber harvests on O&C Lands, but will eliminate our legal grounds for demanding that the BLM comply with the O&C Lands Act of 1937.
Senator Wyden is in the pocket of the environmental activist special interest groups, and wants to permanently withdraw more than half of the O&C lands from any future timber or mineral production, while imposing “ecological forestry” mandates on the remaining lands that will significantly reduce potential timber harvests.
The preservationists will attend to admonish him to withdraw even more lands from production and make timber harvesting restrictions even more draconian. Supporters of natural resource utilization need to show up in equal numbers to present a voice of reason.
