Rep. Herrera Beutler: To save steelhead, we must cut sea lion numbers

Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler, representing Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, requests help from Oregon and Washington’s U.S. Senators to pass the Endangered Salmon and Fisheries Predation Act, to help save our wild steelhead and salmon. Without the bill, sea lions will continue depleting critically low salmon and steelhead populations. While this bipartisan legislation is making progress in the U.S. House — it was approved and advanced by congressional committee just last month — it has a ways to go. We need our partners in the U.S. Senate who represent Oregon and Washington to recognize the imminent peril to steelhead and salmon if Congress fails to take action.

Take a moment to read Rep. Beutler’s August 27, 2017 article in the Columbian. 

The Northwest Steelheaders support Rep. Herrera Beutler’s bill, the Endangered Salmon and Fisheries Predation Act. Please contact your senators to make your support of this bill and its importance known.
