June 27, 2012
U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) has helped secure a one-year extension of county payments today in the final House and Senate agreement on a long-term transportation reauthorization. A member of the House Republican Leadership, Walden has worked with his colleagues in the House to secure the funding for rural counties.
"This one-year extension gives us the breathing room we need to continue our bipartisan and delegation-wide work toward a long-term solution the brings jobs back into the forests to create revenues that keep essential local services like schools and law enforcement afloat," Rep. Walden said.
