Wasco County Commissioners have approved sending a letter to the Columbia River Gorge Commission on that panel’s draft climate change action plan. The letter says the County appreciates the Gorge Commission staff being willing to work with them through the process, but added several of the recommended policies could have far reaching impact on a number of economic sectors and resource protections. It also asked for the plan to coordinate with regional efforts addressing climate change. Commissioner Scott Hege penned the letter, saying it’s important for the Commission to register the comments and stay engaged in the process. Commission Chair Kathy Schwartz had also prepared a draft letter, but said she thought Hege’s letter was acceptable.
