  • $900M plan to aid northwest salmon includes just $540 million for new projects

    By Matthew Daly
    Washington, D.C. (AP)

    A plan that commits $900 million in federal money to help endangered Northwest salmon includes just $540 million for new projects, officials said during April.

    At least 40 percent of the money targeted for salmon restoration would go to existing programs over the next 10 years, said Scott Simms, a spokesman for the Bonneville Power Administration. The rest would go for new work.
