Questions if Boundary County timber money
should go to Washington, D.C.
March 31, 2018
29 March 2018

To the Editor:

Regarding the mention in your article on the federal government compensating Boundary County for revenue the government gains from Boundary County timber sales:
Wouldn't it be better if it never went to D.C. in the first place?  I mean we send dollars to them, they take their cut, and then decide who gets what.

I would rather we keep OUR money and decide where WE want to spend it. We have become so conditioned to the status quo that we are excited when D.C. decides to bestow their benevolence upon us. Sad.

Editor's Note: The article Mr. Bourassa is referring to is Under the new Omnibus 2018 spending bill, some big federal money is coming Boundary County's way, published March 28, 2018. You can see that article by clicking here.
