(Washington, D.C.)  – Today, U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) released the following statement to reaffirm her strong opposition to H.R. 3144, legislation relating to the operation of the Federal Columbia River Power System.

“There is an ongoing legal process intended to account for all uses of our critical river system and a court-mandated comprehensive review that everyone can participate in, so I oppose this legislation that would cut off and politicize what should be a robust and transparent process.”

Senator Murray wrote a letter to House and Senate leaders in February 2018 outlining her concern with H.R. 3144. You can read that letter HERE.
