Washington Ag Today June 23, 2011 The Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce has formally requested that Senator Maria Cantwell oppose President Obama’s appointment of Rebecca Wodder to a position in the Interior Department.

Wodder, who since 1995 has served as CEO of American Rivers, a national river conservation group, was nominated be the next Assistant Secretary for Fish, Wildlife and Parks. The chamber says Wodder advocates lower Snake River dam removal without consideration to the remarkable fish stock improvements that have occurred without dam removal.

The Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce says lower Snake River dam removal would have a devastating effect on the Tri-Cities and would prove to be an economic disaster for Washington state.
