Governor John A. Kitzhaber's Administration

Record Series Descriptions

Salmon and Energy Issues Records
Office/Function: Natural Resource Office
4 cubic feet
Arrangement: Meeting records chronological by meeting date. Other records by folder title.

Series documents issues related to the potential effects of wide-ranging salmon recovery efforts and on the generation of energy in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. A key focus is on the Comprehensive Review of the Northwest Energy System--convened in 1996-1997 by the governors of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana to "seize opportunities and moderate risks presented by the transition of the region's power system to a more competitive electricity market."

Nearly one cubic foot of records documents the Comprehensive Review of the Northwest Energy System. The remaining three cubic feet consist of subject files on issues related to the salmon/energy issue. Hot button issues such as the effects of hydroelectric dams on salmon recovery and the role of hatcheries in the solution are addressed. Records include meeting summaries, congressional updates, correspondence, memoranda, draft studies, meeting sign in sheets, PowerPoint presentation printouts, testimony, proposed orders, reports, maps, charts, publications, and related documents.
