Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) today released the following reaction to a federal judge’s ruling on Biological Opinion (BiOp):

“This week’s ruling is a disappointment.  Our community leaders in the Northwest River region have worked tirelessly on a true collaborative effort that ensures critical hydropower energy can continue to power our families, farmers, and businesses — while also making sure our salmon population is protected.  Those very community leaders are warning that this ruling will set the region back, which no one should take lightly.  We owe it to the Pacific Northwest and the rest of the country to expand an energy source that will lower energy costs and create jobs, and I’m going to continue doing everything I can to help our community leaders wage a path forward for the BiOp.”
