Senate Passes Legislation To Improve Tribal Fishing Sites

The U.S. Senate unanimously has passed legislation sponsored by all four Oregon and Washington senators to enable the Bureau of Indian Affairs to make safety and sanitation improvements at tribal treaty fishing access sites along the Columbia River.  The Columbia River In-Lieu and Treaty Fishing Access Sites Improvement Act calls on the BIA to conduct a much-needed assessment of current safety and sanitation conditions at the sites in coordination with Columbia River Treaty Tribes.  It also authorizes the Bureau to work on improving conditions in several areas including structural improvements to restrooms, washrooms, and other buildings, safety improvements through wells and infrastructure to address fire concerns, electrical infrastructure to ensure safe hookups, and basic sewer and septic infrastructure.  The bill now goes to the House.
