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).

Oregon Congressional Delegation Presses for Federal Disaster Relief for Severe Winter Storms
Oregon’s Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden, joined by Representatives Peter DeFazio (OR-4), Earl Blumenauer (OR-3), Greg Walden (OR-2), Kurt Schrader (OR-5) and Suzanne Bonamici (OR-1), today pressed for a reversal of the Trump administration’s previous decision denying federal disaster relief to Oregon communities following severe winter storms. In a letter to President Trump, the Senators and Representatives added their support to Governor Kate Brown’s appeal of the decision, pointing out that “our state’s rural communities lost critical facility, school, and shelter space that is extremely expensive to replace, and is essential to the recovery of impacted communities.” From January 7-20, 2017, communities across the state experienced high winds, heavy snowfall, ice accumulation, extreme rainfall, flooding, and extended freezing temperatures. In many places, the continuous ice rain and low temperatures created extremely heavy ice sheets that compromised or collapsed r
Schrader, Newhouse Lead Bipartisan Request Urging President Trump to Renegotiate Columbia River Treaty
Reps. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) and Kurt Schrader (D-OR) were joined today by Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Greg Walden (R-OR), Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), and Dave Reichert (R-WA) in a bipartisan letter urging President Trump to commence negotiations with Canada over the Columbia River Treaty (CRT) as soon as possible. “Managing the flow of the Columbia River and its tributaries governs our way of life in Central Washington in many ways,” said Rep. Newhouse. “Renegotiating the Columbia River Treaty has an enormous impact on jobs, hydropower, water storage, flood control, and the environment in the Pacific Northwest. It is important to begin formal negotiations as soon as possible to address certain inequities, such as the ‘Canadian Entitlement,’ as well as to ensure we have an updated and equitable treaty for the 21st century. I am encouraged to be joined by my colleagues to request the President’s administration begin proactive engagement on m
Schrader Bill to Prevent Forest Fires, Reduce Blackouts Passes the House
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5)’s bill to improve the safety and reliability of the electric grid on our federal lands, the Electric Reliability and Forest Protection Act, passed through the House with overwhelming bipartisan support today, 300-118. “Our bill ensures a safe and secure electric grid for our homes and communities, curbing the potential for blackouts or forest fires,” said Rep. Schrader. “Utility companies will now have a streamlined and consistent process for being able to fulfill their mandated responsibility to keep our communities safe, removing hazardous trees and vegetation before they create costly and deadly damage. Creating this streamlined process will save everyone money, and frankly a lot of heartache. Our bill is a great example of the bipartisan work this Congress can achieve for our neighbors at home when we put common sense ahead of politics and work together.” Under current law, even where trees, plants and other vegetation are already in
Schrader, Huffman, McKinley, Walz, Reichert, & Katko Introduce Bipartisan IDEA Full Funding Act
Today, Representatives Jared Huffman (D-CA), David McKinley (R-WV), Tim Walz (D-MN), Dave Reichert (R-WA), Kurt Schrader (D-OR), and John Katko (R-NY) introduced the bipartisan IDEA Full Funding Act, H.R. 2902, to level the playing field for children with disabilities and provide them with a high quality education. In 1975, Congress passed the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), with the goal of guaranteeing that every child with disabilities would have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. At that time, the federal government committed to pay 40 percent of the average per pupil expenditure for special education. Unfortunately, that pledge has never been met: current federal funding makes up just 15.7 percent. The bipartisan IDEA Full Funding Act would require regular increases in IDEA spending to finally meet the federal commitment to America’s children and schools, relieve the burden on states and local school districts, and ensure educational oppor
