A Republican congressman from Washington state says even though there was wide-spread local consensus, national environmental groups were trying to block Greg Walden's bill.  Tuesday the bill passed in the U.S. House.  The Central Oregon Jobs and Security Act" authorizes more water into the Crooked River, paving the way for more businesses to consider Prineville.  Congressman Doc Hastings of Washington state says people who know very little about Prineville were trying to block the bill:  “The frustration we continue to have when we try to move legislation like this to help the local economy to people in those areas is that you have national groups that don't live in those areas opposing it."  The Central Oregon Jobs and Water Security Act authorizes the release of more water into the Crooked River.  Prineville needs the extra water to attract data centers and other high tech companies.
