While the comment period for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management’s call for information ended last month, the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians joined the Oregon fishing industry and Coastal Caucus as notable opponents to the way the federal agency has handled the process of establishing wind farms off the Oregon coast.

On July 1, the tribe released an open letter criticizing the bureau’s designated call areas off the coast of Coos and Curry counties. Last month, the tribe passed a resolution to fight the development of offshore wind off the Oregon coast if they feel it poses a threat to tribal resources.
