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 ...

Oregon Delegation Raises Concerns Around Chemawa Following Alarming Allegations
In response to an investigative report by Oregon Public Broadcasting into the Chemawa Indian School in Salem, Oregon Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05), along with Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, and Reps. Suzanne Bonamici (OR-01), Peter DeFazio (OR-04), and Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), called on the Department of Interior to look into claims alleged in the report. The Members wrote, “we have concerns with: student safety and health, including an alarmingly high report of incidents in recent years requiring involvement from law enforcement; academic failings and high fluctuations in enrollment from semester to semester, as well as debilitating staff turnover rates and vacancies; the staff’s ability to report problems and concerns, and alleged retaliation against whistleblowers; overall transparency from the school with regards to rules and regulations for leadership and decision making.” The five-part investigation began airing less than three weeks ago. The focus of the first
Rep. Schrader Praises Passage of Bipartisan Forest Management Bill
After taking to the House floor to call attention to the need for better forest management to improve the health of our forests and curb the destruction of wildfires, Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05) joined his colleagues from both sides of the aisle to pass the bipartisan Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2017. VIDEO: Rep. Schrader calls for improved forest management to reduce wildfires out west. “Wildfire disasters don’t typically receive as much national attention as other natural disasters,” said Rep. Schrader. “But all corners of the country watched as the fires out west devastated homes and communities during this devastating wildfire season. Our current laissez-faire approach to forest management, with exclusively reactive efforts to fight increasingly horrific wildfires that threaten and destroy our communities is completely inadequate and becoming more and more costly. The bipartisan bill we passed today rewards communities that are proactive and collaborative in th
Schrader Calls OPB Investigative Report into Chemawa Indian School ‘Deeply Troubling’
Following the beginning of a five-part investigative report by Oregon Public Broadcasting on the Chemawa Indian School in Salem, Oregon, Congressman Kurt Schrader released the following statement. The investigative report, which began airing one week ago, has revealed serious allegations of abuse, fraud and mismanagement at the boarding high school for Native American and tribal youth. "I am deeply disturbed by OPB’s reporting of alleged abuse at the Chemawa Indian School. I support the school's mission to provide a high school education alongside an education in tribal heritage and vocational skills to Native American youth. And, I have maintained a deep interest over the years in ensuring that Chemawa has federal support to continue this effort. However, the allegations released over the past week surrounding the activities at Chemawa, and knowing that there are more allegations to come, are significant and deeply troubling. Over the past week, I’ve begun conversations about t
Schrader Votes Against Partisan, Deficit Inflating Tax Bill
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05) today issued the following statement after voting against the Republican tax bill. The bill, which was written behind closed doors, and has not received any bipartisan support or input, passed in the House by a thin margin, 227-205. “I’ve been asking for weeks now: where are my self-proclaimed fiscally conservative friends?” Rep. Schrader said. “This partisan bill, which was shoved through in a closed process with no public or bipartisan input, is going to inflate our national debt to the tune of more than $2 trillion. Where’s the conservativism in that? The idea that we’ll just grow our way out of that $2 trillion hole is pure fantasy. The last big budget-busting tax cut we passed in 2015 didn’t improve our rate of growth at all. “Oregonians deserve better than this bill which strips vital deductions for seniors’ health care and debt-fraught students. As a former small business owner, I know that every penny counts—especially w
