Local State Representative Jason Conger hopes a bill he introduced will inject some economic common sense into the regulatory process. It just passed in the house Monday and now moves to the Senate. Housebill 3591 requires the Department of Environmental Quality to consult with local governments and businesses and minimize costs when enforcing tough new regulation under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act.  Conger explains the new administrative rules imposed water quality standards in Oregon that are 10 times higher than anywhere else in the nation. Conger says without action, Oregon will be at a significant disadvantage when it comes to attracting and retaining employers.
