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 ...

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).

Schrader, Herrera Beutler Introduce Bill to Protect Endangered Salmon and Steelhead on the Columbia River
U.S. Reps. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) and Kurt Schrader (D-OR) have introduced the Endangered Salmon and Fisheries Predation Prevention Act, a bipartisan bill to improve the survival of endangered salmon, steelhead and other native fish species in the Columbia River system. The legislation provides tribal members and government fish managers with the means to remove sea lions from specific areas where they are posing the most harm. Our community prioritizes protecting salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River because they are central to our way of life in the Pacific Northwest,” said Jaime. “The Endangered Salmon and Fisheries Predation Prevention Act is critical because sea lion predation is posing a serious threat to our salmon populations, impacting our efforts to ensure their survival. With this solution, we have to tools to better protect the salmon so vital to our recreational, cultural and economic interests.” “Over the last few years, we’ve seen a record numb
Schrader, Yoho Reintroduce Bipartisan Bill to Stop Horse Soring
Congressman Ted S. Yoho (R-FL-03) and Congressman Kurt Schrader (D-OR-05), both veterinarians for more than 30 years and two of the only veterinarians currently in Congress, re-introduced H.R. 1847, the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act. This bill will amend the Horse Protection Act of 1970, ending the abusive practice known as horse soring. Soring is the practice of intentionally injuring the hooves and legs of Tennessee walking horses to exaggerate the leg motion of these high gaited horses. Even though it’s been illegal for over 40 years, it’s still widely practiced. “I am honored to join my fellow veterinarian, Rep. Kurt Schrader, a bipartisan list of members, and organizations who support the end of Horse Soring. As a veterinarian and lover of animals, we must continue to keep pressure on a select group of bad actors in the Walking Horse industry. They must comply with existing law and stop this illegal practice for good,” said Rep. Yoho. “Horse soring still
Oregon Democratic Delegation Sends Letter Calling for Investigation into VA Caregiver Program
Last week, Reps. Kurt Schrader, Earl Blumenauer, Suzanne Bonamici, Peter DeFazio, and Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden sent a letter to VA Secretary Shulkin in response to recent news reports about a Salem veteran, Aaron Olivas, who was removed from the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers by the VA Portland Health Care System (PCAFC). The letter raises concerns about the rate at which veterans are being removed from the program and lays out a list of questions for the VA. “The [Oregonian] story raises serious concerns with the management of the program at the local level,” the Members wrote. “Specifically, the article claims that the VA Portland Health Care System has been removing service connected veterans from PCAFC at a rate of 50%, a rate significantly higher than the national rate of 16%.  The story also highlights that veterans being removed from the program are not given a medical explanation nor are they given an opportunity to have their
Schrader Statement on Syria Missile Strike
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) released the following statement in response to last night’s U.S. airstrike on Syria: “It is imperative that Assad be removed from power. He has shown himself to be a brutal authoritarian with zero compassion or respect for his own people much less any other nation. His regime’s heinous actions and his cruelty towards his own people are intolerable and have to end immediately. The tepid response this past week by our European and Arab partners is terribly disheartening. The United States’ air strike last night shows that Americans are clearly incensed by the Assad regime's brutality. “However, we are not the world's policeman. Our allies in Europe, the region and indeed all humanitarian-concerned nations need to be involved, and we are clearly willing to work with our partners in the region. Ours should be a supportive role to the nations in closest proximity to Syria, and those most affected by the refugee crisis. I have serious misgivi
