Walden Bill Would Give Local Forests Control Over Roads

 

Klamath Falls, Ore.– Representative Greg Walden introduced a bill this week aimed at giving local folks more control over the management of forest roads. A 2012 travel management plan intended to shut down nearly a third of Wallowa-Whitman Forest’s 12-thousand miles of forest roads. Walden says his bill will allow communities to manage roads based on local needs.
