Staff for the Three Sovereigns process last week finally sent to governors,
tribal leaders and the Clinton Administration a Memorandum of Agreement
intended to better focus Columbia River governance.
The Three Sovereigns process was launched a little more than a year
ago with the goal of improving fish and wildlife management in the basin.
Attempts to gain consensus on a memorandum of agreement to direct state,
federal and tribal energies have languished in the draft stage.
