Rob Handy disrespects Congressman DeFazio (again). by Pat Farr


It’s too bad Rob Handy continues to disrespect Representative Peter DeFazio.

In a snide comment last night at the City Club debate he talked about “Walden’s” bill (referring to Congressman Greg Walden, R, Oregon) to restore sustained harvest of previously harvested timber land in Lane and other Oregon counties.

The disrespect for Congressman DeFazio comes in a couple of orders:  first, the plan has been authored by DeFazio along with Congressmen Walden and Kurt Schrader, (D, Oregon); second, Handy believes that the Congressman and his fellows are wrong in suggesting we restore the dollars we have lost in Federal timber receipts by harvesting timber on already-logged land.

I’ll cover some of the details of what services, ranging from schools to roads to public safety, would be at least partially restored by the plan in subsequent articles. The restorations would be tangible and substantial.
