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 Requests President-Elect Withdraw Bannon Appointment
Congressman Schrader has signed onto the following letter which is currently being circulated among Members of Congress. The deadline to sign the letter is 5pm ET today, November 15th, and the full list of signers will be released tomorrow. Dear President-elect Trump: Immediately following your victory, many Americans were optimistic and hopeful that you would take the steps necessary to unify our country following the divisive and contentious election.  In your election night speech you said, “Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division.  It is time for us to come together as one united people.”  Unfortunately, your appointment of Stephen Bannon, whose ties to the White Nationalist movement have been well-documented, directly undermines your ability to unite the country.  As elected representatives of millions of Americans from diverse backgrounds, religions, and ethnicities, we strongly urge you to reconsider your decision to appoint Mr.
Schrader Urges Contract Extension Progress as West Coast Ports Parties Meet
Washington, DC – On the eve of a meeting between Pacific Maritime Association (PMA) and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU), Reps. Dave Reichert (R-WA), Dan Newhouse (R-WA) and Kurt Schrader (D-OR) led a letter urging both parties to continue discussing an extension of their current contract covering operations at the 29 West Coast container ports. Although the current contract does not expire until 2019, the last time the contract expired in 2014 there was no resolution until 2015. The result was a prolonged dispute that led to backups at ports along the West Coast and an estimated $7 billion of impacts to the U.S. economy. “During the 2014-2015 disruption at the 29 West Coast ports, our growers were forced to dump spoiled produce, our manufacturers were delayed waiting for necessary parts, and our retailers were faced with empty shelves. The impact was not simply limited to the West Coast, but was ultimately felt by communities across the country and the la
Schrader Wants to Speed Up Approval Time for Generic Drugs
The Lower Drug Costs Through Competition Act would give the FDA six months to approve generic drugs, for which a brand name version of the active drug has already been authorized. The bill has bipartisan support, and he believes it could be passed as part of the year-end negotiations in President Obama’s lame-duck session. U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader has introduced legislation with bipartisan support that he believes will limit pharmaceutical profiteering and encourage manufacturers to produce generic versions of drugs for which there’s currently no competition. “I’m trying to come up with a bipartisan way to get it passed,” Schrader told The Lund Report. “It will take the profit motive away from buying up orphan drugs. We expedite the process of getting an alternative.” The Canby Democrat has co-sponsored the Lower Drug Prices Through Competition Act with Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Fla. A lack of competition for many old generic drugs has allowed hedge funds and other
Schrader Applauds FCC Delay, Calls for Greater Transparency
Today, the Federal Communication Commission announced that they will postpone a vote on the new set-top box proposal to allow more time for its consideration. Initially introduced in January, the proposal has since been modified without being made available for public review and comment. “I am pleased the FCC has listened to our concerns and will be delaying a vote on the new set-top box proposal,” said Rep. Schrader. “We all share the goal of greater consumer choice and competition in the video space, however significant concerns remain regarding the impact these new technology mandates will have on many rural Oregon providers and their customers. Stakeholders deserve the opportunity to review any final proposal and provide public input before it receives a vote. Greater transparency on such a complex and technical issue needs be a priority for the Commission going forward.” Earlier this month, Congressman Schrader, along with 63 other Members of Congress, sent a letter
