Section 7. Abstract


In 1995 this position was originally funded by Bonneville Power Administration to have representation by the Burns Paiute tribe in the SOR process and the Northwest Power Planning Council’s Fish & Wildlife program. During this time the Burns Paiute tribe has continued representation in the processes of concern. The tribe has used this position in many capacities to assert its position in the fish & wildlife program. There are project that have been started that have not been completed as of yet. The position is still needed to insure that these projects are implemented. The position is needed for continued work on the Oregon Wildlife Coalition MOA. The MOA is incomplete at this time because of legal review by each entity.
