5/8/2014  By The Chronicle

The U.S. House Appropriations Committee Thursday passed Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler's amendment to restore $65 million to the Pacific Coastal Salmon Recovery Fund, which provides critical funding for recovery projects to improve wild salmon and steelhead habitats across the region.

Herrera Beutler’s amendment brings funding back to last year's levels after the President Obama's budget proposed slashing the program by more than 23 percent, Herrera Beutler’s office said.
