Hearing on O&C Funds

WASHINGTON, D.C. — At the national capitol, Oregon’s representatives are not letting Congress off the hook when it comes to lost timber payments.

On Thursday, Representatives Peter Defazio and Greg Walden announced that the House natural resources committee will conduct a hearing on a long-term bipartisan solution for the O&C lands on April 11.

The hearing was secured after DeFazio, Walden, and Representative Kurt Schrader of Canby sent a letter to Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee requesting open discussion about long-term solutions for O&C lands.
