Yesterday the Oregon Recreation Enhancement (ORE) Act cleared a key hurdle, being voted out of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources committee with bipartisan support. The ORE Act will protect clean drinking water flowing off our public lands and some of the best salmon habitat in the lower 48 United States. The ORE Act would also preserve outdoor recreation including extensive horseback riding and mountain-biking along the Molalla River and hunting and fishing in the Rogue River Canyon which provides a substantial benefit to the outdoor recreation economies for the City of Molalla and all of Southwestern Oregon.  We are proud to support Senator Wyden’s leadership as he moves this bill forward.
