Senator Murray and Representatives Smith and Jayapal are working vigorously to ensure the demise of this destructive legislation and recently sent a letter to House and Senate leadership communicating their strong opposition to HR 3144.
WSC Board Member Josh Mills penned an impassioned editorial in Hatch Magazine titled “Sadistic Insanity on the Snake.” The piece poses a simple but poignant question – are the people fighting to maintain the failing status quo on the Snake too stupid or too evil to be in charge of managing an already teetering wild steelhead and salmon population?
This month we had the opportunity to partake in the Free the Snake Flotilla and the Our Sound, Our Salmon Flotilla, which were powerful demonstrations involving diverse coalitions fighting together for our fish and waters.
Please join the Free The Snake Flotilla on Sept. 8 and Saturday, Sept. 9 2017 and help send a loud and clear message that it’s time to remove these four outdated, deadbeat dams on the lower Snake River.
Multiple courts have ruled that the federal government’s approach to steelhead and salmon restoration on the Snake is misguided and a massive waste of taxpayer money. They’ve ordered the government to explore a new approach, but now new legislation authored by Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers is trying to mandate that we stick with our broken management strategy.
Please join us on December 1st in Seattle for a rally and open house, where you will have the opportunity to speak up and tell the federal government that it is time for the four dams on the Lower Snake River to go!
