The legislation would persuade landowners to particpate voluntarily in sage grouse conservation plans -- and guarantees their private information  could not be disclosed.

 

Republican Senator Doug Whitsett explains to fellow lawmakers the possible consequences, especially in eastern Oregon if the sage grouse is listed as endangered.

 

"A large area of that part of the state is facing potential listings of sage grouse as endangered.  The endangered list would affect 15 million acres.  It woudl be comparable to the spotted owl and its affect on timberland.  It would restrict activities homeowners can do like building and repairing fences or roads, both on private and public lands, driving, hunting and grazing cattle."

 

The bill now goes back to the House to approve some provisions the Senate made to it.
