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).

Schrader, Herrera Beutler Introduce Bill to Protect Endangered Salmon and Steelhead on the Columbia River
U.S. Reps. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) and Kurt Schrader (D-OR) have introduced the Endangered Salmon and Fisheries Predation Prevention Act, a bipartisan bill to improve the survival of endangered salmon, steelhead and other native fish species in the Columbia River system. The legislation provides tribal members and government fish managers with the means to remove sea lions from specific areas where they are posing the most harm. Our community prioritizes protecting salmon and steelhead in the Columbia River because they are central to our way of life in the Pacific Northwest,” said Jaime. “The Endangered Salmon and Fisheries Predation Prevention Act is critical because sea lion predation is posing a serious threat to our salmon populations, impacting our efforts to ensure their survival. With this solution, we have to tools to better protect the salmon so vital to our recreational, cultural and economic interests.” “Over the last few years, we’ve seen a record numb
Schrader Bill to Lower Drug Costs Moves Forward with Unanimous Support
Today Congressman Kurt Schrader’s (OR-05) bipartisan bill to lower drug costs was unanimously approved by the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Health during the markup of the FDA Reauthorization Act of 2017. “This has long been an area where Congress needed to act to put a stop to abuses by unscrupulous, bad actors,” said Rep. Schrader. “In recent years, in particular, we’ve seen dramatic price hikes on life-saving drugs occur, some overnight. But, we know that when generic drugs compete in the market, drug prices come down dramatically. Last year, I began working across the aisle with my good friend, Congressman Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), to combat this problem and work to encourage generic competition where there isn't any on the market. “Accelerating the review process timeline for off-brand generics that have no competition is a great, bipartisan step we can take to bring down drug costs. Companies will be able to bring their generics to the market qui
Schrader Applauds VA Decision to Stop Removing Veterans from Caregiver Program Nationwide
Yesterday, the Department of Veterans Affairs announced that it will temporarily stop removing veterans from the Program of Comprehensive Assistance for Family Caregivers (PCAFC). This comes roughly one week after Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) led the Oregon delegation in sending a letter to VA Secretary Shulkin asking for a halt on removing veterans from the PCAFC in Portland where veterans have been getting kicked off at a rate of 50%, significantly higher than the national rate of 16%. “I’m very pleased that the VA heard the concerns that I and my Oregon colleagues laid out in a letter two weeks ago calling on them to immediately stop removing veterans from the Portland Caregiver Program, and they've now expanded that to veterans nationwide. Our veterans in Oregon and across the entire country deserve transparency which includes knowing exactly what standards they’re being held to. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with the VA to get the answers we need, to
Schrader Slams Bill to Strip Health Care from 400,000 Oregonians
Congressman Kurt Schrader (OR-5) joined House Democrats and 20 Republicans to vote against the Republican bill to repeal Obamacare which passed today 217-213. The bill, known as the American Health Care Act, is estimated to strip health care from over 400,000 Oregonians and 24 million Americans, and gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions. “I’m at a loss for words, frankly,” said Rep. Schrader. “This is a bad piece of legislation that is going to strip healthcare from millions of people, dramatically hike up premiums for everyone, and cost taxpayers everywhere more money. Not to mention it cuts one of the most important pieces of Obamacare: protections for people with pre-existing conditions. “Over the last two months, we’ve seen turbulence in the health insurance market as Republicans tried unsuccessfully to push through versions of this bill. After talking with our state insurance commissioner, patients, insurers, and providers, everyone agrees that
