From: Bob Sowdon To: Bob Sowdon Sent: Tuesday, April 9, 2013 4:19 PM Subject: Fwd: (OLC) OCL SB401 SB838 Death of Mining in Oregon CG912Project Members and Friends, This is an issue that has been here in Lane County, remember when the County tried to expand the Riparian zone 150 feet, over four hundred citizens flooded the Commissioners meeting. This time our legislators are trying to do it again, having an Emergency Clause that will not allow us to refer this issue back to the people. Monday April 15th 3:00pm Room HRC Even if you can not attend in person, submit testimony for public record! Instructions are included. Also let your Representative and Senator know how you feel about these bills! Oregon Citizens Lobby Alert release April 09, 2013 Please share this alert! Your voice counts! The people themselves, and not their servants, can safely reverse their own deliberate decisions. -Abraham Lincoln Report from Oregon Citizens Lobby Economic Development and Land Use Contact for more information or to make comments: [email protected] NO SB401 Designates certain rivers and creeks as scenic waterways. The Riprian Zone on steroids! Ending Mining in Oregon, these are the most mineral rich water being removed. Please look at the pictures of what 1/4 mile will look like http://www.galicemining.com/mining-news/SB-401-SB-388-Infringes-Upon-Your-Property-Rights.html Establishing a "Scenic Easement" 1/4 mile from the bank of any river, is a taking of private property or lands managed by the Federal Government, for public use without first offering compensation under the Oregon Constitution (Article I Section 18). Mining in all of its forms are the intended use and rights of the citizens; it ?shall be free and open? to prospecting, exploring, locating and occupying and purchasing the valuable mineral deposit, which includes the surface in lands open to mineral entry and belonging to the Federal Government. (30 USC 22, 26 & 35) No SB838 A moratorium is imposed until January 2, 2018, on mining that uses any form of motorized equipment. This will kill mining in Oregon, every miner will have to remove any motorized equipment. "any form" of motorized equipment, is so broad that it would curtail any form of mining except panning. They can not determine how many are mining so they stop it..now there will be none! Lines 12-14 in the bill. ?...the agencies are unable to determine the actual amount of mining that is occurring in this state, the locations of the mining, whether best management practices are used...? OCL has analyzed SB401 and SB838 http://www.tracktheirvote.org TTV requires entering the bill number Senate Committee On Environment and Natural Resources There is a Public Hearing scheduled for April 15th 3:00pm Room HRC and a Work session April 17th 3:00pm Room HRC. How to prepare a testimony for public record http://www.leg.state.or.us/comm/ Submit your testimony to Beth Reiley at [email protected] Request your testimony be made a part of the public record and submit by noon the previous day. The testimony must be in PDF format, your word processor allows a document to be exported as pdf files, save and attach to your email. Members of the Senate Committee On Environment and Natural Resources Sen Jackie Dingfelder 503-986-1723 [email protected] Sen Alan Olson 503-986-1720 [email protected] Sen Alan Bates 503-986-1703 [email protected] Sen Bill Hansell 503-986-1729 [email protected] Sen Mark Hass 503-986-1714 [email protected] (copy and paste the email address below into your address line to send an email to all at once...it works) and copy to your Legislators! Not sure who your Legislators are? Click here to find out. [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected] I have attached testimony from Joesph Greene retired EPA researcher and recreational suction dredge miner, the claims made of harm to the environment, fish and wildlife are false! This is an outright attempt to end mining in Oregon. There is no mining during fish spawning. Miners remove and clean up waterways of trash, lead weights and other materials, improving the river bed for fish. Many false claims are made in the relating to mining, there is no scientific evidence of harm to fish or wildlife, contrary there many studies show the opposite! Another claim is there are too many miners, with only about 2000 miners, and the number of miles of waterway by the width, that there would be very little impact if any at all! The impact to Citizens property during the moratorium is not being compensated, any business in Oregon that is involved with mining will not survive, creating a loss in State revenue. This is the State imposing its will on the citizens, not allowing its citizens to respond by declaring an emergency when there is none present! Article IV section 28 of the Oregon Constitution This will affect the local towns and communities as Recreational Miners will not be working their claims, along with the business related to mining in Oregon, nor will Gold be added as income to the recreational miners... this is a ripple effect that will be felt across the State. WOULD DESTROY THOUSANDS OF OREGON JOBS (full and part-time), further decimating the economy of rural Oregon. If you think that this is not in your backyard and you do not need to react and respond to this THINK AGAIN http://www.leg.state.or.us/13reg/measpdf/sb0400.dir/sb0401.intro.pdf NOTE: Matter in boldfaced type in an amended section is new; matter [italic and bracketed] is existing law to be omitted.
