Reichert makes right vote on oil shale


The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed a bill that would open up to two million acres of western public land for oil shale. For over a century, industry has tried to produce commercial oil from shale with no success, but those research projects have ruined air, water, and land resources. But there’s no oil in oil shale – it’s a rock. Ironically, some in Congress want to fund repairs to our crumbling transportation infrastructure with oil shale revenue, but the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said the oil shale provisions would generate ZERO revenue ...

Alpine Lakes Legislation Clears Key Hurdle
Washington, D.C. – Today, a markup was held by the Natural Resources Committee on legislation from Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA) and cosponsored by Congresswoman Suzan DelBene (D-WA): the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Additions and Pratt and Middle Fork Snoqualmie Rivers Protection Act (H.R. 361); it was passed favorably out of committee.  This legislation would expand the Alpine Lakes Wilderness and designate both the Pratt and Middle Fork Snoqualmie Rivers as Wild and Scenic. “Protecting this area for recreation and tourism opportunities is one of my highest priorities and I am pleased to see the Natural Resources Committee take this step to moving the Alpine Lakes legislation closer to law,” said Reichert. “Since this issue was first brought to my attention in 2006, I have refused to give up on working to ensure that the Alpine Lakes area receives the recognition and protection it deserves. Not only is this area an elegant, natural gem of both the state and the nation, it supp
Reichert Supports Governor's Appeal for Federal Wildfire Assistance
Issaquah, WA – After learning that the Washington State request for Individual Assistance, as well as Public Assistance for Chelan County, through a Major Disaster Declaration was denied, U.S. Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-8) issued the following statement:   “I fully support Governor Inslee’s decision to appeal this ruling from the federal government. Not only is this one of the worst wildfire seasons Washington has seen in many, many years, but we have seen individuals and families lose absolutely everything.  The state is doing what it can to help provide assistance but they can’t do it alone.  I am working with my colleagues, FEMA, and the Governor’s office to get the federal help we need to ensure people can access basic necessities and provide for themselves and their families as they rebuild their lives. I urge the federal government to address these needs and seriously consider the Governor’s appeal.”   Wildfires in Washington State have destroyed more tha

Reichert said, “The Mountains to Sound Greenway is already a cultural and historical icon in Washington State.  Passage of this legislation would recognize that fact and help the communities around it thrive economically.  It would also offer further tourism and recreational opportunities to hundreds of thousands of people from not just the state, but around the nation and the world. I urge my colleagues to support the legislation and am grateful for the support of the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust and advocates such as Senator Slade Gorton who testified alongside me today.” Background Twenty years of innovative conservation and collaborative solutions protect the natural heritage of the Greenway. This network of parks, forests, farm
Reichert Tours Fire-Affected Areas
Issaquah, WA - Today, U.S. Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-8) visited fire-affected areas in Central Washington including the Red Cross operation at Chelan High School as well as Entiat, Leavenworth, and Ellensburg. “After meeting so many chiefs and command crews and Red Cross workers today, I am prouder than ever of the work being done by our first responders and volunteers,” said Reichert.  “They have done so much and continue to do so much to ensure that our communities are safe and, if all else fails, that people are removed from harm’s way and provided for.  I cannot remember a fire season quite like this one; so many have lost homes or property and watched years of work go up in flames.  I hope and pray that the remaining fires, such as those threatening Ellensburg and Vantage, are quickly contained, and I will continue to fight in Congress for our fire fighters to have the proper tools and resources to combat this natural enemy.” Reichert is chair of the bipartisan Co
