Protecting Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge, two of Oregon's crown jewels, is a top priority for Congressman Blumenauer in Congress. In 2008, Congressman Blumenauer, along with Rep. DeFazio, Rep. Hooley and Rep. Wu, introduced an "Oregon Treasures" legislative package, which would increase protections for Oregon's Mt. Hood, Rogue River and Oregon Caves. Congressman Blumenauer has consistently voted against drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He is a co-sponsor of legislation to designate the 1.5 million acre coastal plain of the Arctic Refuge as wilderness, thereby permanently prohibiting oil and gas drilling on the coastal plain.
