HR County Commission Looks At Blumenauer Bill

Hood River County Commissioners talked about Congressman Earl Blumenauer’s Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge Recreation Enhancement and Conservation Act, noting that while they like parts of the bill, there are still details to work out before they can fully support it.  Commission Chair Mike Oates says getting into the specifics of the mapping involved is one piece, along with getting federal officers to assist with patrolling and search and rescue around Mt. Hood.  Another topic County officials want addressed is ensuring the Middle Fork Irrigation District can do necessary work on Coe Creek.  The bill is to be heard in a House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Wednesday.
