Act now. Ask your representatives to stop HR 3144 and protect wild salmon and steelhead from extinction. This ill-advised legislation was passed out of committee last week, and the House of Representatives is expected to vote on it next week.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Idaho salmon advocates, the Nez Perce Tribe and a dozen others with its ruling to uphold increased spill that would assist with salmon and steelhead survival as they migrate to the Pacific Ocean. With salmon and steelhead runs at historical lows, making safe passage for baby fish is critical.
