WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Oregon's two U.S. Senators have introduced legislation again to double the state's timber harvest. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley are co-sponsoring legislation during the first week of the new congress.  

 

Senator Wyden says he's not giving up. "Oregonians are not going to settle for the status quo when it comes to timber harvest and natural resources policy and neither will I," he says. "Rural Oregon communities need jobs, they need certainty, and they need the federal government to follow through on its commitments."

 

Although this legislation had bipartisan support in the Senate last session, House Republican leaders blocked them from being included in the end-of-the-year legislation last month.
