Federal lawmakers tout economic impact of South Jetty project
U.S. Sen. Ron Wyden and U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici — Democrats of Oregon — stood side by side with U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, a Washington state Republican, to extol the benefits of the project to the region.
“They’re not just rocks in the water,” Wyden said. “They are linchpins for navigation. Without those jetties … we cannot have big league quality of life and job creation. It just simply doesn’t happen.”
