Counties could reclaim forestland from state under bill: SOCAN testimony quoted

Opponents claim Senate Bill 795, which applies to more than 700,000 acres in 15 counties — including Jackson County — is out of step with a landmark legal precedent that recently affirmed the state’s authority over forestry decisions.
