change to oregon dredging regs ( 15:01:01 SatJul 6 2013 )

In the July 4th issue of the Roseburg newspaper "The News Review", page A5 "State Senate passes bill to limit dredges". In short, it will limit the no of dredge permits to 850 thru 2016 to 850 with preference given to those who held permits in 2009. It also limits the number of dredgers to one every 500 feet. They say this was done in part to stem the influx of California and Idaho dredgers because of their bans. It goes on to say "Its disheartening to see sustainable businesses like rafting companies and fishing guides getting crowded out by polluting and noisy suction dredges." Will the misinformation never cease. FYI the article was written by Jeff Barnard of the News Review if you care to comment. This has yet to pass the House and signed by the governor.

but one of the biggest changes that will make it impossible for most to do is" no dredges left over night in the wetted area" why isn't there any outcry over this?
changes are.
: 9 am to 5 pm
: 6200.00 penalty's and or a year in prisonment.
: 150.00 per permit, for those lucky people.
: 300.00 one time fee, for those lucky people.
: no equipment left over night in wetted area.
: 500ft between dredges minimal.
: 850 permits only, persons with most past permits gets presidents over everyone else.

Also part of the bill allows the governor of Oregon 100% permission to add anything to this bill if it makes it to his desk.
I remember paying 157.00 every year to dredge California as a out of stator.

Many of the miners in Oregon are praying that the Representatives in the House will have the wisdom to see thru this bogus legislation for what it truely intends to do to another industry and vote NO on its passage. Hopefully their votes haven't been bought off with "back-room" dealings. We'll see here very shortly! :duck:

Perhaps you can take a page from the recent Siskiyou case and join forces with the local businesses who will loose big dollars, like CA did, and they can make the difference. I know Mike at Lazy Acres in Gold Hill is always full of miners and would take a direct hit if this passes. There has to others.

This happened in Southeast Alaska years ago but with fishing. When I started trolling for salmon a person could buy a boat and a power troll permit for around $7000. Not the best of boats but you didn't need insurance unless you got a loan. I towed a skiff behind my boat so if it sank I could get into the skiff. First off the govt. made insurance mandatory, then Fish and Feathers and the State decided that you have to have a Power Troll Permit, based on how many years you had be power trolling. Well within the next few years power troll permits were selling for upwards of $45,000. We fished all summer. You could fish year round if you wanted to but winters on Cross Sound can be brutal. Now the fishing season is about 1-2 weeks long. THEY decide when and where. It's even worse in Oregon, where the decisions are made in DC and if the openings for various fisheries coincide with winter storms, tough!:beatingadeadhorse:
