A new forest policy or bust

Sure, you can shift county road and school funds around like deck chairs on the Costa Concordia cruise ship, and you can try to persuade the people who live in some of the poorest communities in Oregon to raise their taxes. But in the end, there is only one way to ensure a future for Oregon's rural timber counties: Get commercial logging and other economic activities going again on federal forests. On Friday, legislators held a public hearing at the Capitol billed as a discussion of ways to respond to the termination of federal county payments, the loss of tens of millions of dollars of ...

Good News & Bad News out of D.C. on Animal Protection

There are big stirrings today at the federal level―both bad and good―on farm animal policy. This morning, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a harmful rulingnullifying major portions of California’s 2008 law to ban the mistreatment and slaughtering of downed animals, with implications not only for the humane treatment of pigs and other farm animals, but also for the health and safety of consumers. Thechallenge to California’s lawwas brought by the National Meat Association and supported before the court by the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC), which argued that the Federal ...

Bill Introd. to Improve Welfare Stand. for Egg-Laying Hens

The Humane Society of the United States and the United Egg Producers -- who, by all accounts, are strange bedfellows -- announced Monday strong support for H.R. 3798, the Egg Products Inspection Act Amendments of 2012, which was introduced this week by Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-OR), Elton Gallegly (R-CA), Sam Farr (D-CA), and Jeff Denham (R-CA). United Egg Producers, which represents 87 percent of domestic egg production, and HSUS struck a historic deal to create national animal welfare standards for egg production, notably transitioning from battery cages to enriched housing systems, including ...

Bipartisan Schrader Bill to Strengthen Career & Technical Education Passes with Unanimous Support
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05)’s bill to advance workforce development passed unanimously in the House today. The Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act will support CTE learning opportunities to align learning opportunities with in demand jobs to give the next generation not only the skills they need to compete in the global economy, but the necessary tools that our communities and industries are lacking. The bill also passed unanimously out of the Education and Workforce Committee last month. “I consistently hear from industry leaders and business owners who are providing necessary services to our communities that they have all of these open positions they can’t fill because workers with those niche skillsets just don’t exist,” said Rep. Schrader. “We’re simultaneously facing this job crisis where we’re graduating millions of kids each year from high school and college who then enter into the workforce unable to find real careers.
Schrader: Republican Repeal Sends Affordable Health Coverage Into A Death Spiral
In response to the public release of the Senate bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) released the following statement: “The Republican repeal bill that the Senate is now considering is even worse than the bill that was forced through the House last month, which already would take health care from hundreds of thousands of Oregonians. Slashing Medicaid expansion is going to destroy our efficient coordinated care and rural hospitals in Oregon, killing the economy across rural America. National insurance companies will pull out of the individual market with the lack of any permanence to reinsurance and cost sharing reductions. Their bill is also going to lead to huge premium and deductible price hikes for everyone, especially seniors. All of this will leave millions without access to any affordable insurance while the marketplaces grow increasingly more unstable. With all of the uncertainty we’ve been facing since the House Republican repeal bill
Oregon Senators, Representatives Introduce Bipartisan, Common-Sense Bill to Ensure Oregon Counties Can Use Emergency Response Funds
Oregon’s Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, along with Representatives Kurt Schrader (OR-5), Greg Walden (OR-2), and Peter DeFazio (OR-4), today introduced legislation to ensure that Oregon counties can use Secure Rural Schools (SRS) funds for a full range of emergency response activities, including preparations for emergency response and law enforcement patrols. This bill represents a common-sense fix to a problem that has prevented many counties from using their full Secure Rural Schools resources where they are most needed in the community. The legislation is also cosponsored in the Senate by Senators Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Jim Risch (R-ID), and Patty Murray (D-WA). Currently, the federal government allows SRS funds to be used for counties’ emergency response activities – but not for preparations for emergency response. This has created an illogical policy where, for instance, counties could use these funds to carry out a search and
Schrader & Bipartisan Pacific Northwest Delegation Introduce Legislation to Address FCRPS Biological Opinion
Today, Pacific Northwest Reps. Kurt Schrader (OR-05), Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Jaime Herrera Beutler (WA-03), Dan Newhouse (WA-04), and Greg Walden (OR-02) introduced bipartisan legislation to approve the Federal Columbia River Power System (FCRPS) Biological Opinion (BiOp) until 2022. This legislation will work to support the FCRPS and the benefit it brings to our region through the clean, renewable, and affordable energy it provides while allowing salmon to recover at record rates. “It is time for science, not politics, to drive our energy and salmon restoration policy,” said Schrader. “The BiOp has been the product of three administrations’ work that’s been informed by our experts at BPA, the Corps, NMFS, USFW, tribes, energy groups, and environmental groups. It would be imprudent at best to cast all of that informed work aside. Over one third of our electric bills pay for fish passage on the Columbia River with 95% passage rates. It is time to get politics out a
