Field Burning Bill Moves (SB 528)

 Wednesday, June 17, 2009 - Oregon Farm Bureau



The field burning ban bill moved out of the Natural Resources Ways and Means SubCommittee today.  The bill was amended to preserve the tool for the Silverton hills, however it allows the Environmental Quality Commission to prohibit field burning by rule.

We are aware of some legislators who were opposing the bill are now supporting the bill.  Please contact both your Senator and Representative today and ask them to VOTE NO and preserve farmers use of fire as a management tool.
