TD Community Action Team Goes To D.C. Next Week

The Dalles Community Action Team will be headed to Washington, D.C. next week for its biannual visit to pitch local projects and issues to federal officials.  Wasco County Commissioner Scott Hege says one of the topics on this year’s trip will be to advocate for forest policies to allow for sustainable harvests.  Hege says that would help keep forests healthy along with bringing needed revenues to county governments and creating employment.   Another Community Action Team focus for this trip will be the long-discussed issue of allowing for an expansion of The Dalles urban growth boundary within the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.
