GOP leadeers were able to secure a two year extension for timber payments in rural counties in Oregon.

 

U.S. Congressman Greg Walden says they are poised to approve a two year extension of the Secure Rural Schools program this week.

 

These timber funds help pay for local schools, roads and law enforcement in these areas.

 

"Today we are making good on a commitment to funding schools, counties, roads and to fund basic services they have to have in rural Oregon."

 

The timber payments are in a must-pass bill to prevent deep cuts in Medicare reimbursements to doctors.

 

This legislation is expected to pass the House this week and also in the Senate.
