Right now, we have the opportunity to make federal forest policy work for Oregon and the country. It’s clear that the status quo isn’t working.
Oregonians have been responsibly managing forests since the time of the Oregon Trail, and simply want the chance to get back to work in the woods. We have a chance to stand with our rural forest communities and create good family-wage jobs while reducing poverty.
That’s why Greg has written a bipartisan plan to create jobs in our forests, use the revenue generated to fund essential local services like schools, roads, and law enforcement, and end the status quo of gridlock litigation.
