Summer Recess Conversation: Ron Wyden

Aug. 22, 2013 7:06 p.m.

After 32 years in Congress — first as a representative, then a senator — Ron Wyden is enjoying the highest public profile he's probably ever had. His rise to chair of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee this year was already a boost in stature, but his prominence ballooned even further when Edward Snowden disclosed NSA surveillance practices. As a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Wyden had been warning of the surveillance tactics of the U.S. government for years, but the issue wasn't as important to Congress and Americans until the Snowden leaks. Wyden has continued to express skepticism and concern over the Obama administration's statements regarding the NSA disclosures. In his role at the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, he has focused on waste cleanup facilities at Hanford, small hydropower projects, wildfire prevention, and Klamath Basin water issues. His plan for how to manage the O&C timber counties is expected to be announced in the fall, when work will begin to reconcile it with the House plan, introduced by Representatives DeFazio, Schrader, and Walden.
