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

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, O’Halleran Introduce Bill to End Government Travel Abuse
Reps. Kurt Schrader (OR-05) and Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) today introduced the Taxpayers Don’t Incur Meaningless Expenses (Taxpayers DIME) Act, which ensures no taxpayer money is spent on government air travel that violates rules applied to senior federal officials, increases transparency and oversight of government travel, and calls for the independent Office of Government Ethics (OGE) to report on ways to strengthen existing rules. "There's often a running, mostly false narrative that Washington doesn't play by its own rules. When we see federal officials jet around the country on taxpayer dollars, the skepticism only deepens," said Rep. Kurt Schrader. "Our Taxpayers DIME Act ensures that public servants are transparent and fiscally responsible in their air travel spending, and it will hold those who aren't accountable. We're here to serve our neighbors back at home, not lavish their hard-earned dollars on personal luxury. If that's too much to ask, then go home -- and fly commerci
Schrader Calls on Congress to Put Politics Aside, Reauthorize CHCs & CHIP
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) released the following statement after news that the Senate will not take up the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill this week. “Recklessly repealing the Affordable Care Act would have been catastrophic for millions of families across our country and completely destroyed our health system. Enough with the partisan games,” said Congressman Schrader. “We should be working to stabilize and improve health care in our country, not tear it down. Our immediate focus should be on reauthorizing necessary funding for Community Health Centers (CHCs) and the Children’s Health Insurance Fund (CHIP), and stabilizing the individual insurance market. I’ve spent months working across the aisle to develop bipartisan solutions to stabilize the individual marketplace and improve the ACA. I plan on continuing that bipartisan work throughout the fall with my Problem Solvers Caucus in the House and our Democratic and Republican friends in the Senate. We need to get our prio
Oregon Delegation to Portland ICE: Do Not Deport Our Dreamers
Rep. Kurt Schrader (OR-5), along with Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, and Reps. Suzanne Bonamici (OR-01), Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), and Peter DeFazio (OR-04) today sent a letter calling on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)’s Portland Field Office to refrain from conducting mass, untargeted deportation raids, and to avoid targeting Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, known as Dreamers, and their families. “[The Administration’s recent announcement to eliminate DACA] has caused increased anxiety for many of our constituents including DACA recipients, community members, and business owners,” the Members wrote. “DACA recipients provide sensitive information to the Department of Homeland Security with the assurance that the information won’t be used against them and their families. DACA recipients go through DHS background checks and become contributing members of society. They deserve safety and peace of mind.” At the beginning of this mont
Schrader Applauds Attention Given to Wildfires, Says There’s More to Be Done
The House Committee on Natural Resources held a hearing today titled “Exploring Solutions to Reduce Risks of Catastrophic Wildfire and Improve Resiliency of National Forests,” focused on finding solutions to reduce fire suppression costs along with the need to improve forest management practices. Since coming into federal office, Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) has made a priority of working to fix our broken forest management system and the resulting destruction from preventable wildfires. “I thank Chairman Bishop and the Nature Resources Committee for holding this hearing today and giving serious thought and consideration to the problems we’ve been fighting to fix for years to prevent these natural disasters in the west,” said Rep. Schrader.  “While the southeast captured the national attention this summer with massive hurricanes and tropical storms, out west we’ve witnessed one of the worst wildfire seasons in history. Because of the way we currently budget, USF
