Kitz Weighs in on Columbia Salmon

Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber has had a busy late summer and fall working on salmon issues. Not only is he spearheading a solution to the stand off between sport fishing, conservationists and commercial gillnetters in the Columbia, last weekend he weighed in on the long running battle over the future of Columbia and Snake River salmon. The state of Oregon is a litigant in the long running lawsuit challenging the validity of the Columbia BiOp, and in a guest editorial to the Oregonian, Kitzhaber calls for an end to the litigation and a collaborative process between all stakeholders that can lead to a lasting solution for the Columbia.
