Are you aware of the fact that Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) has purchased several ranches in Wheeler, Grant, Wallowa and Umatilla counties and deeded them to the Confederated Tribes? This takes this land off the tax rolls and you and I have to make up the differences. Just because the land tax is erased from the rolls, the taxes required are still imposed overall.
