WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Greg Walden (R-OR) spent nearly a half hour on the House Floor Tuesday talking about the armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. He says he doesn't support the actions of the group, but he understands their frustration. "I'm not condoning this takeover in any way; I want to make that clear." But, he adds, "I have seen what happens when over-zealous bureaucrats and agencies go beyond the law and clamp down on people." 

 

The Oregon Republican says many ranchers feel the same way because of the government over-reach. "This is a government that has gone too far for too long." He called on Congress to change the way bureaucrats ignore laws and follow their own agenda. 

 

He says the law that lead to a five-year prison sentence for Steve and Dwight Hammond must be changed. "We can change that law, and we should."
