GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon hopes to get two of his top priority bills through the lame-duck session of Congress — before Democrats lose their majority in the Senate.
On Thursday, his Committee on Energy and Natural Resources will take up a long-stalled bill to implement agreements to remove dams from the Klamath River to help salmon, share scarce water between fish and irrigators, and repair environmental damage.
The committee will also consider his bill to increase logging on the federal O&C lands of Western Oregon that provide major sources of revenue to timber counties.
The expectation is that once the bills are out of committee, Wyden will attach them to must-pass legislation that will allow them to gain passage in the Republican-controlled House, where they have long faced opposition.

PNP comment: Rex Cozallio, who farms on his family’s heritage lands along the Klamath River, shares his frustrations over the Oregon U.S. Senator Wyden’s (newest) Task Force to force the destruction of 4 Klamath River hydro-electric dams – 3 are located in Siskiyou County. Info on Wyden’s end-run around the House of Representatives, where the monies are appropriated for projects can be found at the following link.
— Editor Liz Bowen
Senators Feinstein and Boxer
It is foolish for me to write at a time I am so angry, disillusioned, and sorrowed by the massive designed attrition of our community and devastation to our environment that will inescapably occur due to your implementation of the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement/ Klamath Hydroelectric Settlement Agreement (KBRA/KHSA). Due to the pending legislation, time is too short to wait. Years of requests to you to share facts and perspectives from those most knowledgeable and affected have fallen on deaf ears. From your response, or lack thereof, you seemed not only uninterested in considering the regional KBRA/KHSA impacts, oppositions, and alternatives, you obviously never even bothered to fully read the ‘Agreements’ themselves. Finding that to be a typical reaction we have come to expect from you when dealing with a region that, though physically large, presents an ‘insignificant’ economic or numeric demographic, I perhaps wrongly assumed you simply held no interest. Often in the past from your released media statements relative to other issues, I would take heart that there was a chance you may actually care about something that didn’t personally benefit, only to frequently see those words pass by as dust in the wind. That is why I was so dismayed when seeing that you not only publically endorsed the KBRA/KHSA, you are proudly ‘Co-Sponsoring’ the legislation! Your publically quoted claims of fictional ‘solutions’ and ‘consensus’ and its somehow associated ‘improved water reliability’ and ‘crisis’ benefit for the State, are either ignorant or deceptively manipulative to the extreme and COMPLETELY contradicted by the current realities and ‘Agreement’ terms themselves. Apparently responsibility, truth, or accuracy have little place in current agenda politics.
We are 4 generations living on, in, and with the Klamath River we love at the ‘focal point’ of greatest ‘dams impact’ rhetoric. We have endured though time and adversity for the love of the river, environment, and community. Raised in the river, before and after Iron Gate, the Klamath water literally flows through my veins. We and many other long term river residents have personally sacrificed far more over the generations to maintain and enhance this environment and river region than ANY agency or NGO never seen. We and others at our location, settler and Native American alike, personally witnessed, and ‘experts’ hailed, the tremendous improvements the dams and hatchery made to the water quality, riparian stability, reduced flood damage, fisheries enhancement, regionally benefitting power generation, and sustainable late summer flows. We have lived the well managed beneficial balance of water received from our upper basin brothers and fisheries prior to the late 90’s and the fabricated lies of the subsequent agenda created crisis. We know and have the historical documentation, the empirical evidence, the exposed conspiratorially profiting corruption, the nearly 80% of most affected and regionally knowledgeable who officially voted in OPPOSITION to removals, and the current scientific studies that PROVE the agenda driven inconsistent insanity of the KBRA/KHSA. We have watched the Secretary of Interior under executive directives set the pre-determined options for created ‘Agreements’, have the Secretary’s own employee instrumental in ‘Agreement’ predeterminations orchestrate their own supportive contracted ‘studies’, ‘objectively’ parse those ‘studies’, discard those that did not ‘conform’, ‘administer’ the ‘public comment review’, and ‘present’ a ‘Secretarial Recommendation’ for ‘Secretarial Determination’ identical to the preconditions the Secretary originally set. We still weep for the now agency forgotten regional thousands of lives and knowledge already lost during 15 years of ‘modeled theory management’ implemented and miserably FAILED on the Klamath at a cost exceeding half a billion dollars, as knowingly predicted by those lost, which same ‘theories’ merely expand with immunity under the ‘Agreements’. We are currently seeing thousands being sacrificed in the off-project upper basin as a result of those recently expanded ‘Agreements’, and we know from history, experience, and the ‘Agreements’ themselves, of the many thousands more that will be sacrificed when the full impacts of the ‘Agreements’ materialize. Perhaps most importantly, we have alternative ACTUAL engineered and PROVEN successful solutions to this proposed destruction that would fulfill ALL beneficial uses at a fraction of the proposed cost and WITHOUT environmental disaster and the associated massive attrition of our region and culture. Those are some of the reasons why, to date, I am unaware of a SINGLE long-term, or actually ANY river resident, at our ‘most dams affected’ reach, who is in favor of the KBRA/KHSA. In spite of, or perhaps BECAUSE of this, at NO time has ANYONE from our most affected and ‘dams knowledgeable’ location been allowed to even SIT at the ‘table’ which demanded acceptance of dams’ removals and an illegal tiered hierarchy granting government and their self-appointed, special interest ‘Council’ ostensible control and impact over ALL of unrepresented regional majority vested rights and property. Those ‘Agreements’ will legislate NON-representative, Self-appointed, special interest ‘adaptively managed’ taxpayer/ratepayer funded unaccountable authority for agenda driven devastation to our entire region and environment.
For you to steadfastly refuse to even LOOK at those concerns and alternatives, and then to make false statements FORCING this agenda down our throats without accountability or compensation for imposed devastation speaks volumes and can only lead to limited explanations, even allowing for the most altruistic motives. It is possible you may be ignorant of the affected facts and either due to personal belief or political credit feel it the ‘appropriate’ thing to do, regardless of impacts. Or, alternatively, you may be fully aware of the agenda driven intended attrition of life vested regional resources, believe that government must confiscate all right and title to those resources for its own use and interest, and believe that the unrepresented taking and impacting of rights and property without compensation or accountability is acceptable towards the re-creation of a socially engineered ‘new world order’ top-down feudal system of which, of course, you would be one of the enlightened ‘masters’. If, in my ignorance, there is another option for your possible perspective which I missed, I apologize and look forward to hearing it. With either of the prior two explanations, the damage done is the same.
As I understand it, there are two obligations pursuant to the execution of your senatorial duties. One is for you to promote an opinion, whether you believe it representative of those whom elected you, or whether you believe those who elected you also elected your personal opinion. The other obligation is your sworn oath to uphold the Constitution and the liberty and rights it entails. Recognizing the tendency of a democratic majority to eventually oppress the minority, Constitutional authors enumerated the protective unalienable rights of individual citizens. While your Klamath opinion may be to ‘represent’ the largely non-vested and unaffected majority of your constituents by ‘co-authoring’ the KBRA/KHSA legislation in opposition to a majority vote of those most directly affected, you have also made the sacred oath to uphold the Constitution and prevent the circumvention of individual liberty, rights, property, and the condemnation process it requires.
With little hope for different outcome I would once again ask that, before throwing the full weight of your position behind ‘Agreements’ bringing such unnecessary loss and hardship to our region and environment, that you allow a meeting and the time for presentation by myself or others of KBRA/KHSA related facts you may not be aware.
