In September 2009, The Source wrote a up a critical review of a new bill being sponsored by Senator Bates. Very little press has happened on this new bill, so we’re wondering how The Source got the scoop?
By the way, the source did a great job of explaining river rights! It’s long been the contention of CWO that it’s fairly easy to take away rights that no one knows or understands. It’s critical that newspapers do a bit of research and accurately relay the history of Oregon river rights and how strong they are. Good Job to TS!
