Oregon’s Legislature Most Anti-Business, Anti-Family Cost of Living

The extremely controversial Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) enacted by SB 324 is arguably the most egregious of all the anti-business and anti-consumer laws passed. This law serves to raise the costs of energy for businesses and families, while making no measurable impact on global carbon emissions and failing to provide a single penny for much-needed road infrastructure improvements anywhere in Oregon. The only beneficiaries will be many of the out-of-state green energy corporations who helped sponsor the bill. We asked the DEQ representative how much of Oregon’s carbon output results from forest fires. His reply was it is not counted at all was mind-numbing! The public health impacts of such fires are severe and readily apparent. The reality is that many of the catastrophic wildfires that happen every year could be easily prevented through sound, science-based forest management practices. As a state, we are running the long-term risk of losing our fire insurance coverage. We came very close this year, even following huge increases in the insurance premium. If that happens, Oregon taxpayers and landowners will have to the bear the full cost of fighting these fires. That will divert resources from schools, public safety and other essential government functions. Catastrophic wildfires are bad for the environment. They are second only to volcanoes in the global emissions of greenhouse gases. They kill and horribly maim wild animals and poison and kill fish. Contamination with toxic ash and increased erosion of stream beds ensure many years of seriously degraded fish habitat. It is more important than ever that we put people back to work in our forests to do the kinds of preventative maintenance that is needed to keep them healthy and thriving. Sustainable forest harvest is symbiotic. It provides jobs and building materials while improving forest health. It ensures healthy forests for recreation that brings tourists from all over the world to share the scenic beauty that we have been blessed with.

Portland, Oregon New Law To Increase Auto Insurance Rates

PORTLAND, Ore. -A new law enacted by the Oregon Legislature that takes effect Saturday will change the way auto insurance claims involving injuries and uninsured drivers are paid by insurers. SB 411 Increases Motor Vehicle Insurance by $55 per year. SB 411 changes requirements for two insurance policy types: Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM). Drivers in Oregon are required by law to carry at least minimum limits of both policy types, in addition to Liability insurance. (Drivers in Washington, Idaho and California are only required to have Liability insurance – the other coverages are optional.) Under the new law, the benefit period for payment of PIP benefits has doubled from one year to two.

Multnomah County’s Wapato Jail Remains Dark and Unused

With the 13th anniversary of Wapato’s completion fast approaching, current county officials, like those who preceded them, are left wondering what to do with a mothballed facility that costs taxpayers between $300,000 and $400,000 a year to maintain. That means the county has spent about $4.5 million since Wapato was completed to keep it safely in mothballs. It’s been so long since the project was launched, in fact, that all of the bonds sold to finance the jail will be paid off by 2016 – possibly before it has ever housed a single inmate.”The core issue is that a prior county board, in an ill-advised move, decided to build this facility when it wasn’t clear that it was needed or that we could afford to operate it,” board Chairman Jeff Cogen said.”Unfortunately, both turned out to be true.”

GOP Candidate for Senate Booted from Editorial Meeting For Calling out ‘blah blah’ Disrespect

A Republican Senate candidate was kicked out of a local Oregon newspaper’s editorial board meeting after daring to challenge a reporter who dissed a fellow candidate by writing “blah blah blah” in his notes instead of her actual quotes. For those folks that may not know the publisher of the Willamette Week, Richard Meeker, is the husband of our Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum. Coincidence? The video of Mark Callahan’s Fox & Friends interview, with Tucker Carlson, on 5/4/14, regarding the Willamette Week’s contentious showdown with the liberal interview panel:
