Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson said Wednesday that his effort to save wild Snake River salmon by breaching the four lower Snake River dams is alive and well despite not being included in federal infrastructure legislation.

The conservative Republican representing Idaho’s 2nd Congressional District spoke at a salmon-orca webinar hosted by the Nez Perce Tribe and said when his concept centered on dam removal and mitigation for affected communities and industries was released a year ago, he viewed the Biden administration’s infrastructure push as a timely vehicle.
