The Columbian
Published:

U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, joined her Eastern Washington colleagues, Rep. Dan Newhouse and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, in hailing the federal decision:

“For the past several years, scientists and engineers have studied the impacts of the federally owned and operated dams on our economy, environment and protected species and came to the conclusion many of us recognize: The benefits of the dams along with the mighty Columbia and Snake rivers are far too precious for our region to go without. While we continue to review this final study, we are proud to see a comprehensive, science-based process come to fruition and will continue to work in Congress to ensure we keep improving upon both efficiency of our infrastructure as well as critical fish passage and salmon survival efforts.”
