What Klamath County’s state lawmakers think (about dam removal), H&N, posted to KBC 11/25/08. (KBC NOTE: Nearly 98% of those who voted supported Senator Whitsett's re-election as Oregon State Senator in the five county District 28. Senator Whitsett opposes dam removal and the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement. 300 Off-Project irrigators signed a petition against the KBRA. 640 throughout the Klamath Basin signed another petition, and more than 250 Karuk tribal members and people living on the Klamath River oppose the KBRA. Siskiyou County Supervisors, home of 3 Klamath River Dams, unanimously oppose the KBRA, and the Klamath County Natural Resource Council "cannot support draft 11 as written." 74 people signed a letter favoring the agreement in the Klamath Basin, however the green media calls the overwhelming majority "detractors". The Upper Basin Resource Conservancy was not allowed at the table; they represent 50,000 acres of Upper Klamath Basin agriculture.)
