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

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 Slams Trump Announcement to End Cost Lowering Health Care Payments as Pure Spite
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05) issued the following statement in response to the President’s announcement to stop cost sharing reduction (CSR) payments for the individual health insurance exchange. It’s estimated that ending CSR payments will hike exchange-plan premiums an average of 20 percent. “This President has based his whole career on showmanship and publicity stunts, but what he just pulled is more than a stunt: it’s the worst kind of spite,” said Rep. Schrader. “The only consequence of ending these payments is a bottomed out individual marketplace, making insurance unaffordable for millions of Americans. There is absolutely no benefit to anyone, no practical or necessary reason for ending these payments, which are already fully paid for, other than to deliberately and actively take away health care. “I went to a meeting at the White House last month to seek support from the President for my bipartisan plan to stabilize the individual market. He has paid l
New Dem Health Care Leaders Slam Trump’s Ending of Cost Lowering Payments
Reps. Kurt Schrader (OR-5), Ami Bera, M.D. (CA-07) and Ann McLane Kuster (NH-02), co-chairs of the New Democrat Coalition Task Force on Affordable and Accessible Healthcare Task Force, and New Democrat Coalition Chair Jim Himes (CT-04) slammed the President today for ending cost sharing reduction (CSR) payments to the individual health insurance exchange. In July, the co-chairs led a group of 10 House Democrats from across the political spectrum in a five-part plan, titled Solutions Over Politics, to stabilize the individual marketplace and improve the Affordable Care Act. Their plan, which has been endorsed by roughly half of the Democratic caucus and was the foundation of later bipartisan plans and discussions in both the House and Senate, calls for making CSR payments permanent. “We’ve committed the better part of this year engaging with health care experts, insurers, providers and constituents to develop a thoughtful, solutions driven plan to stabilize the individual marketp
Schrader, Sánchez, Meehan, Lance Introduce Bipartisan Legislation to Help Seniors Stay in Their Homes
Congressman Kurt Scharder (D-OR), along with Reps. Linda Sánchez (D-CA), Patrick Meehan (R-PA), and Leonard Lance (R-NJ), today introduced the Community Based Independence for Seniors Act to create a new Community-Based Institutional Special Needs Plan (CBI-SNP) demonstration program. This program would target home and community-based services to low-income Medicare beneficiaries who need help with activities of daily living. “Seniors shouldn’t be forced to spend down their assets to access the care they need,” said Rep. Schrader. “Too often, we rely on nursing home care as a one-size-fits-all solution for at-risk seniors. It’s often ineffective and inefficient. By broadening services available to seniors to include vital day-to-day services like home-delivered meals and transportation assistance, we can bring down the costs of care and help seniors in Oregon and across the country stay in their own homes.” “I know firsthand the difficult decisions seniors and thei
Schrader, Bonamici, Blumenauer Call for Hearings to Investigate Oregon ICE Incidents
WASHINGTON, DC – Today Representatives Kurt Schrader (D-OR), Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR), and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) called on the Judiciary and the Oversight and Government Reform Committees to exercise their oversight authority of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and hold hearings about the agency’s policies and procedures. Last month, the Members called on ICE’s Portland Field Office to refrain from conducting mass, untargeted deportation raids, and to avoid targeting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, known as Dreamers, and their families. “These incidents, several of which are recorded on video, call into question whether ICE officials are conducting themselves in full accordance with federal law and agency policies and procedures,” wrote the lawmakers. “In the last several months there have been multiple allegations of ICE officers around the country failing to follow proper protocol, potentially acting in violation of an in
