McClure to testify for forest access bill
More than two years after the U.S. Forest Service withdrew a Travel Management Plan for the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, Union County Commissioner Steve McClure is heading to the U.S. Capitol to testify on the matter.
The chair of the Union County Board of Commissioners has been invited by the House Natural Resource Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation to testify in favor of Rep. Greg Walden’s Forest Access in Rural Communities Act Tuesday.
“The reason I’ve been invited is because of the issue with the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest,” McClure said. “They’ve asked me to come back and relate our experience and how local officials viewed how that went down.”
