Newhouse drops “save the dams” bill 

Bipartisan legislation has been introduced in Congress aimed at saving the Snake River dams in Washington state.

The bill — introduced by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers with Rep. Dan Newhouse, both R-Wash., and others — would keep in place the Federal Columbia River Biological Opinion, or BiOp, until 2022. It’s a plan created by a collaboration of federal agencies, states and tribes to protect salmon while operating dams.
