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

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, Bilirakis Introduce Bipartisan Bill to Lower Drug Costs
Today, Congressman Kurt Schrader (D-OR-5) and Congressman Gus Bilirakis (R-FL-12) introduced a bipartisan bill to lower the cost of prescription drugs by increasing competition in the market. The Lower Drug Costs Through Competition Act will incentivize drug makers to develop generic drugs when competition currently does not exist, or when there is a drug shortage.   “The greed and abuse of power we’ve seen from certain unscrupulous drug companies in recent years is disgusting,” said Congressman Schrader. “We keep hearing stories about lifesaving drugs becoming astronomically expensive, sometimes overnight and often with zero explanation. This outrageous price gouging has to stop. Our bill will increase competition in the market, giving folks more choice while lowering costs, especially for the most vulnerable who’s lives depend on some of these medications.”   “Too often, we’ve seen the price of potentially life-saving drugs skyrocket as bad actors take a
Rep. Kurt Schrader Calls President Donald Trump's Border Wall "A Stupid Idea"
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced plans to follow through with his campaign pledge to add to the existing wall between the U.S. and Mexico, at a cost of around $15 billion. U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.)'s tweet this morning is pretty self-explanatory. Schrader represents Oregon's Fifth District, which covers a wide swath of the Willamette Valley, where agricultural interests depend on immigrant labor, and the parts of the Cascades and the Coast Range, where migrant workers often replant timber lands. Schrader, of course, is just one of many skeptics about Trump's plan. Read the full story at Willamette Week.
Schrader, Yoho Reestablish Veterinary Medicine Caucus in the 115th
This week, Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) and Congressman Ted Yoho (FL-3), two of only three licensed Veterinarians in Congress, reestablished the bipartisan Veterinary Medicine Caucus for the 115th Congress. The caucus aims to raise awareness of the importance of veterinary medicine, as well as to advance research, public health, animal health and welfare, and food safety. “The Caucus remains committed to finding solutions to the biggest issues facing veterinarian medicine right now like recruitment and retention across rural America, helping students manage overwhelming debt, and fighting to keep education costs down,” said Rep. Schrader. “Just like with human medicine, there is zero room for bureaucratic red tape when it comes to training the next generation of doctors.” The Veterinary Medicine was first established in 2012 in the 113th Congress. Since then, they’ve lead the charge on a number of bills and issues including the introduction of the Veterinary Medicine Mo
Schrader Statement on Regulatory Order
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) released the following statement on the President’s Executive Order to Reduce Regulation and Control Regulatory Costs: “For years I’ve heard from schools, teachers, small business owners, farmers, workers and taxpayers in my district that there are too many rules and regulations coming from Washington, D.C,” said Rep. Schrader. “It's time to get rid of antiquated, outdated rules that interfere in local control and decision making. DC should be in the business of producing outcomes, not micromanagement. If not much else, at least the new President understands this.”
