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 ...

Schrader Calls for CBO Score on Republican Repeal Bill
Today during the Energy and Commerce markup of the Republican Repeal Bill, Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) attempted a motion to delay the markup until a CBO score on the bill is released. The motion was tabled without debate. “All I tried to ask for is a delay in consideration of this bill until we have all of the facts,” said Rep. Schrader. “How can we seriously consider a bill without knowing the real-world effect it would have on our economy, our pocket books, and most importantly, our constituent’s health care? In 2009, a CBO score on the ACA was available to members of the committee before they voted on the bill. My friends across the aisle seem so adamant to force this hastily written bill through that they won’t even allow us to ask for a delay. Knowing the CBO score on such major legislation is something my friends on the other side of the aisle who claim to be fiscally conservative should care about. Forcing a vote without knowing the real world effect is reckle
Schrader Reintroduces Bipartisan Timber Innovation Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Oregon’s Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, along with Oregon’s Representatives Suzanne Bonamici, Peter DeFazio and Kurt Schrader, have joined Senate and House colleagues in introducing the bipartisan Timber Innovation Act, which aims to find new and innovative uses for wood as building material. “Oregon’s rural economy depends upon innovative thinking around the challenges and opportunities facing our timber mills and manufacturing businesses,” Senator Jeff Merkley said. “Oregon has a powerful opportunity to be a leader in cross-laminated timber and mass plywood panels. This legislation supports our rural economy, while also promoting lower-carbon, more sustainable tall wood building construction in urban Oregon.” “This bill represents the can-do Oregon way by focusing on creative solutions that can generate jobs throughout our state in timber, manufacturing and construction,” Senator Ron Wyden said. “Oregoni
Reps. Schrader and Alonso Leon address Woodburn residents at Town Hall
U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Canby, and state Rep. Teresa Alonso Leon, D-Woodburn, responded to questions about immigration, health care, and the economy at a Woodburn town hall meeting on Saturday, which was attended by about 100 people. It was the third town hall meeting Schrader had held over the past couple of weeks, previously holding ones in Clackamas and Salem in late February. Many of the questions were focused on immigration and deportation, especially in light of recent Immigration and Customs Enforcement arrests in Woodburn. "With the new executive order, pretty much everybody who's in this country that's undocumented is at risk," Schrader said. Schrader said he had recently spoken to ICE leadership, who said there's no new initiative to increase enforcement. But Schrader said that given the current climate, it's especially important to be prepared for interactions with ICE. "I think with that new era of fear and, unfortunately, invasiveness, in my opinion, from the feder
Lawmakers Revise Bill to Speed Generic Drug Approvals
A House bill aimed at getting more generic drugs on the market won’t be moving on a fast track to markup. The legislation ( H.R. 749) is intended to lower drug prices by introducing more generic drug competition. Drugmakers are under heavy scrutiny by lawmakers, consumers, medical professionals and the president for their pricing practices. The measure was introduced Jan. 30 by Reps. Gus Bilirakis (R- Fla.) and Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.). The sponsors and House Energy and Commerce Committee staff are working on a bipartisan basis to revise the bill before it is considered by the committee, a committee aide told Bloomberg BNA in a March 6 email. The bill would require the Food and Drug Administration to prioritize and act on generic applications within 180 days of being filed for drug products that are in short supply or when there are too few manufacturers on the market. It also would increase transparency on the generic drug application backlog at the FDA. “There are a group
