Tester Statement on Weyerhauser

Senator Jon Tester released the following statement after Weyerhauser announced they will be closing their lumber and plywood mills in Columbia Falls:

“These layoffs are a major blow to folks in Columbia Falls and across the Flathead Valley. I will continue to push to create more job opportunities and increase timber harvests in the Flathead because I believe it is critical that everyone laid off at Weyerhauser has the opportunity to attain a good-paying job here at home.”
