  •  Ron Wyden unveils a plan (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    to double timber harvests in 18 counties across Oregon on "O&C" lands, using an ecological approach to determining which trees get cut (it requires leaving a  third up) and protecting old growth. This will earn him ire from some environmental groups, and Walden, DeFazio and Schrader (I think) already supported a more aggressive plan (which Obama opposed). I wonder where our other members will be on it, and if it passes. It could certainly help bail out some local governments and communities who need the money.

    ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936
