Wyden, Merkley and Bentz Urge Unity In Klamath Basin

Washington, D.C. – Oregon’s U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and U.S. Rep. Cliff Bentz issued the following joint statement today about the Klamath Basin.

“The latest chapter of the ongoing challenge in the Klamath Basin requires a unified approach locally and within the Oregon delegation to secure every possible short-term resource to help the Basin.  That same unity is required in the work on the long-term solution that all responsible parties in the region know is needed so urgently.

“That’s why the three of us are continuing to work together to get additional federal resources from the Departments of Interior and Agriculture so we can all work collaboratively to weather this difficult year. The Klamath Basin needs us to stay together in this battle, and hopefully we will set the trend for how all of us can approach this important work.”
