This weekend, Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson’s office released a video announcing the rollout of a comprehensive Northwest infrastructure package on salmon recovery. This proposal will lay the groundwork for the largest river and salmon restoration effort in history.
CVI applauds Congressman Simpson for taking this important and historic step forward. Now is the time to take bold action and develop a solution that brings abundant salmon back to our region, honors Indigenous cultures, and upholds the commitments made with Northwest tribes.
This is just the beginning. The video speaks to Congressman Simpson’s values around salmon recovery and the process his office has navigated to identify a comprehensive solution, but there aren’t many public details at this time.
We’ll keep you updated as this package moves forward.
