Greg Walden applauds Department of Interior review of sage grouse plans

US Representative Greg Walden (R)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) released the following statement applauding Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s secretarial order establishing a review of federal sage grouse plans:

“I am pleased to see Secretary Zinke order this review and direct the agencies to work more closely with communities in Oregon and across the West to determine a better path forward for the sage grouse plans. Over the last few years, I’ve heard concerns from ranchers and community leaders about the impacts of onerous grazing provisions and mineral withdrawals on local economies. Unfortunately, these concerns were largely ignored in the final sage grouse plans. Ranchers and private landowners in eastern Oregon are doing great cooperative work to help sage grouse and have valuable firsthand knowledge that can improve federal land management. I am encouraged that Secretary Zinke wants to involve and listen to local input in this review to determine how to move forward in a way that doesn’t put our rural communities out of business.”
