Klamath County votes to back out of KBRA

The Klamath County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously yesterday to back out of the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement.

Reports the Klamath Herald and News:
The commissioners' decision came after hearing on Feb. 12, when more than 70 people spoke on either side of the KBRA divide, and after the commissioners received and reviewed hundreds of emails and letters on the subject. [...]

Commissioner Jim Bellet voiced concerns over the KBRA's impacts to Klamath County's economy. Commission Chairman Dennis Linthicum said he saw the lack of water storage as a big problem with the agreements. Commissioner Tom Mallams thought the KBRA did a good job bringing people together, but he said a better agreement could be reached.
