80% of the land that would be withdrawn from production under the proposed Rogue Wilderness Expansion Act is in Josephine County. On February 23, 2012, the Josephine County Republican Central Committee held a town hall on the proposed wilderenss expansion bill that opened with this presentation.

On March 7, the Josephine County Board of County Commissioners passed a resolution opposing any new Wilderness or Wild & Scenic River designations in our county.
