Oregon needs our help. From the GPAA President in Portland

Oregon is currently under attack like California has been for a number of years. Senate Bill SB838B would effectively destroy all mining in Oregon. They plan to impose a moratorium like CA and unless we act now, it will pass.

I URGE you to call your House Representative and let them know how you feel about not just destroying mining, but a significant part of Oregon’s economy. Science is on the side of the miners and the opposition is still using the same tired old excuses saying mining harms fish. It does not.

Thank you to Richard, President, Portland chapter GPAA for keeping us informed.

Please folks, call or email your Representative today.

One thought on “Oregon needs our help. From the GPAA President in Portland”

  1. It’s really a sad thing when you see the power of stupid people in large groups. Thanks to the tree hugging freaks and our communist thieving politicians, these stupid uneducated idiots have once again proved that not really doing any study on this has once again breaking federal law and taking away more of our rights away not only from us the veterans but hard working tax payers. I really can’t believe that this is the answer. The lost income to company’s, the market, the state, and to us, was never considered not to mention the loss of jobs. You tree hugging freaks and those politicians have once again spit on those whom have offered their lives to give you the privilege to have your say when we the veterans ha to earn it. Thanks for spitting in our faces once again. You are in no way true Americans and should be deported to a country that has no right if you don’t like the American way. For shame on all of you.
