Salmon need water not politics
For Immediate Release, August 13, 2015
Klamath Basin, Oregon – Salmon and the largest dam removal project are still being held hostage as a bargaining tool to get legislation passed for Senate Bill 133. Over 50 tribes have advocated against S. 133 the Klamath Basin Water Recovery and Economic Restoration Act of 2015 also known as the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement (KBRA). In an effort to support tribal rights and sovereignty tribes have wrote letters advocating against the KBRA. Senator Murkowski of Alaska wrote a letter in reply. Murkowski assured tribes she understands the concerns of tribal sovereignty as it relates to S. 133. Murkowski’s letter also ensures tribes that the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs will be fully consulted if S. 133 was to advance that far.
