This just in from Central Oregon Landwatch: This is a historic moment, as the Metolius Protection Act of 2009 just passed the Oregon House 31-28! House Bill 3298 recently passed the Oregon Senate as well and now heads to the Governor’s desk to get signed into law.
We’ll be back in touch with more details soon, but we wanted to take a second and spread this amazing news. Thank you, everyone who helped make this happen. Thank you for making this possible and helping turn this legislation into law. We’ve just helped protect over 300,000 acres of land in and around the Metolius River Basin. This is truly a remarkable and historic achievement, one for the history books indeed.
