Many thanks to everyone who helped get this letter, sent to Senators Merkley, Wyden, Cantwell, and Murray in such a short turn-around time this week! We are so happy to report that your quick action resulted in this letter, signed by all of our U.S. Senators to the Conference Committee.
Surface Transportation Bill Letter to Conference Committee
The conference committee live streamed their meeting today, and Ron Wyden (scroll to minute 31:36) specifically called out Hood River in his comments:
During his meeting/press conference last week in Hood River, Congressman Walden said that OneGorge’s ability to quickly gather signatures on advocacy letters for regional issues has been very helpful to him and his staff in DC, and we have heard the same from Oregon state house and senate reps.
Thank you to everyone that took the time to sign and to help carry this promising legislative action forward.
