Logging in the Tillamook and Clatsop State Forests

HB 2975

Topic | 
Legislative Session | 

This bill would have prioritized logging over all other uses in the Tillamook and Clatsop State Forests, throwing out a long-term management plan that already promotes excessive levels of logging. This would have seriously harmed fish and wildlife, while threatening the drinking water source of tens of thousands of Oregonians. In the waning days of the session, a motion was brought to pass this bill on the House floor. Fortunately, the maneuver failed to garner the 31 votes needed to pass.
