The 2022 Oregon legislative session ended last week, and it’s been a while since WSU has seen a legislative session so packed with significant conservation legislation.
Wild Steelheaders United is thrilled to announce that in the final days of the Oregon legislature’s “short session,” the Private Forest Accord package passed the Oregon House and Senate and now awaits Governor Brown’s signature.
On February 1st, the Oregon legislature commenced a “short session” that will continue into early March. TU is tracking a variety of bills during the 2022 short session that relate to wild steelhead issues.
New comprehensive agreement, known as the Private Forest Accord, will dramatically improve the health of Oregon watersheds for both fish and people.
