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 Presses Secs. Zinke and Perdue for Additional Resources to Fight Wildfires
Oregon’s Sens. Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden and Reps. Earl Blumenauer, Kurt Schrader, Suzanne Bonamici, Peter DeFazio, and Greg Walden today urged federal land management agencies to heed Oregon Gov. Kate Brown’s request for additional fire suppression resources to address 17 large wildfires raging across the state, including two that have been designated as the highest national priority wildfire. In a letter to Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, the Oregon lawmakers stressed the need to be creative and assertive in identifying additional resources to fight the fires, which will continue burning — threatening communities and treasured landscapes — until the rain begins to fall. “Like Montana and other parts of the west, Oregon is enduring a severe fire season that has stretched resources thin. With those resource challenges in mind, we are writing in support of Governor Brown’s request for additional capacity on the ground to sup
Oregon Members Urge Wildfire Assistance in Hurricane Harvey Emergency Spending Bill
Reps. Kurt Schrader (OR-05), Peter DeFazio (OR-04), Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), Greg Walden (OR-02), and Suzanne Bonamici (OR-01) today sent a letter to House leaders requesting that emergency funding for wildland fire suppression be included in the Hurricane Harvey emergency supplemental appropriations bill the House will take up later this week. The United States Forest Service (USFS) is expected to exhaust its funding for wildfire suppression within days. Dangerous wildfires have forced thousands of Oregonians to evacuate their homes and businesses and degraded air quality has caused serious health issues across Oregon. Currently, Oregon’s Chetco Bar fire has consumed more than 167,000 acres. It is estimated that the Chetco fire will not be contained until the end of October. To make matters worse, there are 23 other Oregon fires, including the Eagle Creek fire now threatening the Portland metro area and Columbia River Gorge communities. In total, these fires have burned over 340
Bipartisan Schrader Bill to Lower Drug Costs Passes Congress with Overwhelming Support
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05)’s bipartisan bill to lower drug costs passed overwhelmingly in the Senate today after passing unanimously in the House last month as part of the FDA Reauthorization Act of 2017. Generic drugs save taxpayers and consumers money. Schrader’s bill will bring more generics to market faster by increasing opportunities for quicker FDA approval, especially where there are few alternatives. “Every few months we see headlines about another extreme drug price hike,” said Congressman Schrader. “Some unscrupulous CEO buys the rights to produce a drug that has been on the market for decades, usually where there are no competitors, and they raise the price astronomically overnight. In so many of these stories, the drug has been off patent for years, but there isn’t a generic version on the market. Generic drug manufacturers may want to bring a generic version to the market, but they face a long approval process, steep costs, and a whole lot of uncertai
Schrader, Latta Author Bipartisan Legislation Providing Regulatory Relief From FCC Rules for Small Businesses
Congressmen Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Bob Latta (R-OH) have authored bipartisan legislation, the Small Entity Regulatory Relief Opportunity Act (SERRO), to provide regulatory relief for small businesses and entities under the jurisdiction of Federal Communication Commission (FCC) rules. Any entity that qualifies as a small business as defined by the Small Business Administration would be able to seek this regulatory relief.  SERRO seeks to reduce the regulatory burden for these entities in a few different ways. The bill directs the FCC to establish streamlined procedures for small businesses seeking relief through petition waivers.  The legislation also would provide a one-year grace period before new regulations apply to small entities after they become effective for larger businesses, except in certain cases where statute specifically bans deferment or to protect public safety. SERRO would also direct the FCC to review all exis
