Mt. Hood Recreation Area Bill To Be Introduced To Committee

It appears a bill addressing increased protections for the Mount Hood Recreation Area will be introduced to a Congressional committee on Wednesday.  Hood River County Commission Chair Mike Oates said on the Mid-Columbia Today program Monday morning that Congressman Earl Blumenauer called him Friday and sent him a draft of what will be sent to committee this week.  Oates says after reviewing the draft, he felt issues the County have raised in talks with Blumenauer were addressed, but financial support remains a question.  Oates said the bill did include bringing in law enforcement through the Forest Service, which could take a financial burden off of Hood River County.
