PASCO, WA – A public rally supporting preservation of the four Lower Snake River dams is planned for Monday, Jan. 13, from 4:30 to 6:00 PM at the Pasco Red Lion Hotel. The KNOW THE DAM FACTS rally will immediately proceed Gov. Inslee’s planned public workshop, which will also be held at the Pasco Red Lion Hotel.  

Organized by the Tri-Cities Legislative Council, the rally will feature remarks from a broad coalition of policy experts; business, agriculture and community leaders; andelected officials from across eastern Washington, including video messages from U.S. Reps. Dan Newhouse (WA-04) and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) 

The rally comes in response to Gov. Inslee’s Lower Snake River Dams Stakeholder Engagement Draft Report, which was released in late December and has prompted renewed concerns over potential breaching of the four Lower Snake River dams.    

Community members concerned about the breaching of Lower Snake River dams are encouraged to attend Monday’s rally and submit written comments supporting their preservation.
