The residents of Crook County got some great news from U.S. Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon; the legislation called “Central Oregon Jobs and Water Security Act” is moving forward in the House. Walden says it can't come fast enough; as he's met with Apple officials, who are excited about their new project in Prineville  and are already looking to the future. "They're going to have a rapid start to the first phase; and then have a whole unique way of building out the rest. And I’m told there's a third, unnamed center being considered. Time is of the essence here. We need to get this legislation not only through the House, which I have every confidence that we'll do, but we need to get it moving in the Senate." Walden says he's gotten assurances from the Majority Leader of the House that the legislation will be on the House floor in the next couple of weeks and the Democrats have signed off on it. Walden says once the Act is passed; construction jobs to build the facilities will surface, because there will be adequate water to sustain the business.
