U.S. Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon is still angry over a permit snag that prevented a Mercedes Benz commercial being filmed in Central Oregon. The ad was to be shot along the Cascades Lakes Highway with Mount Bachelor in the background. But, the Forest Service failed to issue a permit in time. “This caused us to lose $150,000, at least, in a depressed economy. Central Oregon has always been open for business and make sure the forest service gets its act together so this sot of problem doesn't happen in the future. Because of the permitting problem, the Mercedes commercial will now be shot in California.
