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 Leads House Dems in Calling on Speaker Ryan to Stabilize the Individual Market
Reps. Kurt Schrader (OR-05), Peter Welch (VT-At Large), and Scott Peters (CA-52) led 86 of their House Democratic colleagues in calling on Speaker Paul Ryan to lead in a bipartisan manner to stabilize and improve the individual market while protecting the Affordable Care Act. “We strongly support the Affordable Care Act [which helps millions of families purchase affordable health coverage, and helps keep out of pocket costs low],” the members wrote. “The individual market, accounting for seven percent of health care enrollees nationwide, needs improvement. Senate Republicans have indicated a willingness to work with Democrats to address this. We are ready to work with you in a bipartisan manner to stabilize and improve the individual market.” The letter goes on to outline the bipartisan solutions to stabilize the market that were unveiled less than two weeks ago, including: Reauthorizing and making permanent federal reinsurance programs. Funding the Cost-Sharing
Schrader Leads Bipartisan Health Care Plan to Stabilize the Individual Market
Less than three weeks after initiating a conversation on stabilizing the individual market with a plan that’s been endorsed by roughly half of the Democratic Caucus, Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05) today led the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus in unveiling a similar plan to improve the system to provide some predictability as insurance companies make decisions about premium prices in 2018. "The country is fed up with partisanship and politics taking precedence over real solutions to the problems we are facing, especially in health care,” said Rep. Schrader. “Right now, we have serious problems in our individual health care marketplace that both sides recognize. Let's deal with them!  Continued uncertainty will put that market into a death spiral. My colleagues and I in the bipartisan Problem Solvers caucus have listened to experts, insurers and providers to come up with a simple straightforward revision to the ACA to make sure 20 million Americans still get affordable
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 Reacts to Failed Skinny Repeal in the Senate
Just over two weeks after Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-05) led a group of ten House Democrats to unveil Solutions Over Politics, a series of proposals to stabilize the individual market and improve the Affordable Care Act, repeal of the ACA died in the Senate in a late night vote. “The uncertainty that the new administration has created is throwing the health care industry into a spiral and it’s the folks across this country who will pay for it the most,” said Rep. Schrader. “If we don’t start acting on real solutions, everyone at home is going to pay for it with higher premiums. It’s never been more apparent than it has this past month that politicking and partisanship will not get us to a solution; working together will. I’m glad to see that the Senate recognizes we don’t need reckless bills that are only meant to fulfill empty political promises. We need concrete solutions and real proposals that will solve the problems at hand. I’m sick of political nonsense t
