 ... then, please  take some more time to contact the listed lawmakers and let them know this is a very bad idea and why. If you have or ever had any interest in mining in Oregon or care about the future of Mining in America, the time to act is NOW. The next couple of days will be absolutely critical, consider what has already happened in California, Idaho, etc.

Oregon really needs to get in contact with Washington state we know how to make mining an enjoyable activity here, I have no idea why legislators think recreational mining is destructive it is not when done correctly !! commercial open pit mining and chemical leaching  are destructive to the environment but there is a lot of money involved in that type of mining and the federal and state governments rake in some large profits from it!  If they charged for river use  in Calif I bet all of the new restrictive regulations would go away esp if it was applied to a salmon recovery effort!!!!!
