Chavez-DeRemer tours Weyerhaeuser mill
September 6, 2023
Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer (OR-05), a member of the House Agriculture Committee's Forestry Subcommittee, toured the Weyerhaeuser lumber mill in Lebanon on Aug. 30.
Chavez-DeRemer told The New Era the purpose of her visit was to recognize how valuable the company is in the state of Oregon and across the country, and to find out where the "pressure points" are in the industry so she can determine how the federal government could best help. Those areas of interest might include loans and grants, transportation or industry issues, or supporting apprenticeship programs and the workforce.
