More Time for Klamath Deal

Posted By on Wed, Jan 2, 2013 at 11:31 AM

As expected, the 40-plus government agencies, counties, tribes and environmental and farming groups that hashed out a pact to divvy up water supplies and remove four dams along the Klamath River have re-upped for another two years, extending the deadline of their accord to the end of 2014.

That gives Congress two more years to act on authorizing legislation -- something that advocates originally had hoped would happen by the end of 2012.

The Karuk Tribe's Klamath Coordinator, Craig Tucker, told the Eureka Times-Standard that he hopes for less gridlock from the new congress.
