Protect the Metolius Basin from Destination Resorts

Received this from the Native Fish Society. I hope my fellow Oregonians, and anyone else who loves the Metolius, will take a few minutes to write in support of HB 3100.

Thanks,

Eric

House Bill 3100 needs strong showing of public support

Please help and forward this to friends, neighbors and family who want to see the wild Metolius River and its native fish protected. The Oregon House Rules Committee meets May 29 at 3 p.m. on HB 3100 before it goes to the House floor for a vote. Contacting committee members and key legislators in the House to voice your strong support for HB 3100 and the Metolius Area of Critical State Concern (ACSC) is needed NOW. A few more votes are needed in the House to pass it, and dislodging it from the Rules Committee and blockage by the leadership is essential. You can help. Legislators do listen to their constituents.



If you live in any of the following districts please phone or email (or both) your representative and let him/her know of your strong support for HB 3100 and the Area of Critical State Concern (ACSC). Please ask others to do the same.



Emphasize the damage that the Metolian resort would do to the critical spawning and rearing of Chinook and sockeye salmon, and bull trout in Lake Creek, a critical tributary nursery. And that the property is within elk winter range. You can mention that the other proposed resort developer now supports HB 3100.


HOUSE RULES COMMITTEE

Representative Arnie Roblan (Florence, Reedsport and Coos Bay)

Representative Roblan is the Chair of the House Rules Committee, which currently has HB 3100. Contacting him is particularly important, even if you don't live in his district. Ask him to vote for HB 3100 and move it to the floor for a full House vote.
