US Senator Ron Wyden is introducing a new bill aimed at increasing the timber harvest in Western Oregon.

The bill is called the Oregon and California Land Grant act of 2013. In the plan, Senator Wyden proposes *doubling* timber harvest on " O & C" lands to 300 million board feet annually.

More information on the bill is expected to be released later today.
