Commissioners from 3 Counties Voice Support for Walden’s O&C Trust, Conservation and Jobs Plan
Thursday afternoon Commissioners representing Josephine, Douglas and Jackson counties held a press conference in Medford, expressing support for Representative Greg Walden’s O & C Trust, Conservation and Jobs plan.
The plan would create jobs and provide revenues to struggling counties while improving forest health and protect water, fish and old growth.
Representative Walden expressed his appreciation for the support and stated “momentum is building to change the broken system, from local communities to the halls of congress.”
Walden pointed out the plan was approved by the House Natural Resources Committee and that the House leadership has promised him the bill will be considered by the full House in September.
