Some spout that these pipelines bring the promise of jobs; they sound, as this alone should sanction this project. While they may feel their heart is in the right place, I find them sadly shortsighted. They must be completely unaware of the devastation the pipelines would bring to both private and public lands. No one in Oregon is unaffected by these pipelines.
It would seem the point of having State Government is to have those closely associated with the land and people be the ones to make land use decisions.
Thank you, Sentators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley for introducing a bill that would bring control back to the States. It helps to have back up when fighting for our homes.
