750,000 acres have burned in southeast Oregon and Governor Kitzhaber has declared a State of Emergency for that part of the state.  Harney and Malheur counties have been hit by wildfires.  Cameron Smith, a Policy Advisor for Governor Kitzhaber says the Emergency Declaration will help them to deal with the devastating loss.  “From reports on ground from BLM and local fire districts, this was a significant burn.  It’s a vast moonscape due to the fires.  The long term challenge on ranching and habitat side for wildlife as those restoration efforts continue.”  The funding for the emergency is coming from the Farm Bill currently before Congress.
