Subsidy for Timber Counties
GRANTS PASS, Oregon (AP) - The Senate has passed a bill that includes a one-year extension of a federal subsidy for timber counties, including about $100 million for Oregon. Senator Ron Wyden had added the extension of the now expired Secure Rural Schools program to a bill addressing the impeding shutdown of the national helium reserve, which passed the senate yesterday. The House has passed a helium bill, but without the timber county funding - and the the fate of that program remains uncertain.
