Field Burning along I-5

House Bans Field Burning!

Today the house passed SB 528 banning the hazardous practice of Field Burning by 2010. The bill was carried by Representative Paul Holvey.  This was one of my priority bills as the health risks to constituents and citizens across Oregon have been drastically affected by this outdated practice. The Senate earlier passed the bill and it now goes to the Governor for signature.

We will all breathe a little more easily!
