News Clips from around Oregon

We all have heard the phrase and understand the meaning of "Knowledge is Power" by Francis Bacon,1597. Below are some news articles from around the state this week. Over a decade of Democrat One Party Rule, their failed policies and attacks on the rights of lawful citizens have Oregonians wanting change.

Roughly 4500 votes in the last election among 6 legislative seats separated Republicans from holding the Majority in the House of Representatives. Oregonians read these headlines below and are waking up to the Democrat's failed policies and more and more are understanding that Oregon Republicans can help successfully put Oregon back on the right track. We have great opportunities to achieve this moving forward. We must not succumb to the democrat efforts to divide us. Only together will we be successful!   

Rural Oregon gets more control over fish and wildlife policy
Capital Press
Representation on the commission will shift over time, with new members appointed from river basins as the current roster’s staggered terms end, said Rep. Bobby Levy, R-Echo.
“Congressional districts cannot equitably represent vast landscapes with different needs. This regional representation will bring a diversity that’s not currently in place, especially by elevating Oregon’s tribes,” Levy said.

Oregon Department of Justice Asks Feds to Narrow Subpoenas in Fagan Case
Willamette Week
The Oregon Department of Justice asked the U.S. Department of Justice on June 21 to narrow the scope of subpoenas it issued to five state agencies in May related to former Secretary of State Shemia Fagan and her relationship with the founders of the La Mota dispensary chain.
The Oregon DOJ argued the broadness of the subpoenas would require months of staff time from each agency to cull through millions of pages responsive to the feds’ requests. The federal government launched a criminal investigation into Fagan and her ties to La Mota less than a month after WW first reported on a lucrative consulting contract Fagan signed with La Mota’s founders, Aaron Mitchell and Rosa Cazares. Fagan resigned less than a week after WW reported on the contract.

Portugal, a Model for Oregon’s Measure 110, Is Having Second Thoughts About Drug Decriminalization
Willamette Week
“A newly released national survey suggests the percent of adults who have used illicit drugs increased to 12.8 percent in 2022, up from 7.8 in 2001, though still below European averages,” the paper says. “Portugal’s prevalence of high-risk opioid use is higher than Germany’s, but lower than that of France and Italy.”
And: “Overdose rates have hit 12-year highs and almost doubled in Lisbon from 2019 to 2023,” the Post says. “Sewage samples in Lisbon show cocaine and ketamine detection is now among the highest in Europe, with elevated weekend rates suggesting party-heavy usage. In Porto, the collection of drug-related debris from city streets surged 24 percent between 2021 and 2022, with this year on track to far outpace the last. Crime—including robbery in public spaces—spiked 14 percent from 2021 to 2022, a rise police blame partly on increased drug use.”

Multnomah County to distribute foil, straws to fentanyl users in harm reduction effort
In a controversial new policy, the Multnomah County Health Department plans to distribute aluminum foil and straws to fentanyl smokers in Portland in July, officials say.
Spokesperson Sarah Dean confirmed to KOIN 6 that city officials announced their plan to distribute the supplies in a PowerPoint presentation last week. The supplies will also include glass pipes and snorting kits.
As first reported by the Willamette Week, Dean said the rise of fentanyl has decreased the demand for needle-focused “harm reduction” services. Because fentanyl is typically smoked rather than injected, she said visits to clinics have recently dropped 60% since 2019.

‘Snorting kits’ for drug users to be distributed in Portland despite Dem opposition: ‘Reckless’
Fox News
Portland resident Angela Todd rips city's 'inhumane' plan to give tin foil, straws to addicts
"Snorting kits" for drug users will soon be distributed in Portland, Oregon, and its surrounding county as part of a harm reduction plan that even the city's Democratic mayor opposes.
The Multnomah County Health Department announced the plan Friday and said it will expand available drug paraphernalia for users to adjust for alternative methods of fentanyl use beyond injection. This will include tin foil, straws and "snorting kits."

Portland Is Unprepared for the Wave of Transgender Kids Arriving Without Housing
Willamette Week – July 5, 2023
Portland is a refuge for transgender people fleeing the storm of anti-LGBTQ laws that is striking red states—but, for many, getting here is just half the battle.
One in every five transgender people has been homeless at some point because of family rejection, discrimination and violence, according to the National Center for Transgender Equality. Of the 1.6 million homeless youth in America, up to 40% might be transgender, the NCTE says.
Some transgender kids come to Portland with stable families who buy houses in places like Irvington (see “They Arrived”). Others, young adults included, come to the city with little more than a backpack. For them, Portland may not be the haven they had imagined, because resources are constrained.

Homeless encampments remain in Portland, despite tent ban: 'It's bulls---'
Fox News
"While I support our sidewalks getting cleared, my hope is with this ban comes more outreach to actually help these people," said Kevin Dahlgren, a Portland-area drug and alcohol counselor who has been an outspoken critic of the West Coast's approach to dealing with homelessness.
Dahlgren worries the ban will simply result in homeless people being swept from one street to another and back again, a concern that was echoed by Matt Bordonaro.
"Until we create the camps and safe spaces and really try to crunch down, they're not gonna take it serious. Nobody takes it serious," said Bordonaro, development director for Oregon Harbor of Hope. The nonprofit is the brainchild of legendary Portland developer Homer Williams, who has frequently clashed with city over how best to handle the homeless crisis.

Portland city govt tells staff to avoid mentioning 'pregnant women' and 'citizens' in woke language directive
Fox News
As Portland struggles to manage crime and an increase in homelessness, city staff members are being told to adopt a more "culturally conscious" vocabulary that includes not using words such as "women," "Caucasian" or "citizen."
The Office of Equity and Human Rights pushed an Inclusive Writing Guide in June as part of a "city-wide collaboration" to alter commonly used terms that they feel have evolved.
The guide suggested removing femininity from terms commonly used for women, including replacing "pregnant women" with "pregnant people" to be inclusive of those "who have this experience [pregnancy] but do not identify as women."

Oregon farm estate tax relief bill awaits governor's signature
Capital Press
A simplified method of estate tax relief for Oregon farmers may soon become law despite complaints it will reduce state revenues to benefit the wealthy.
Senate Bill 498, which creates a tax exemption for family farm, forest and fishing estates worth up to $15 million, is intended to ease the succession problems such operations often face.

While the state already has a tax credit meant to reduce the “death tax” burden for farmers, the provision is saddled with 36 requirements that often hinder families from using it, said Rep. Kevin Mannix, R-Salem.
“It’s an accountant’s and a lawyer’s dream and a family’s nightmare,” said Mannix, a chief sponsor of SB 498.

Distributor buy-in needed for Oregon's plan to expand Narcan access
With fentanyl-related overdose deaths rising, Oregon lawmakers passed a bill to expand access to naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal medication often referred to by the brand name Narcan.
House Bill 2395 still needs Governor Kotek's signature to become law, but the "Opioid Harm Reduction Policy Package" received widespread support in Salem, with approval from about 90% of both the House and Senate members.
The idea is to make Narcan much more prevalent throughout Oregon, helping to save lives as the state wrestles with the fentanyl crisis. It's a concept that community organizations and activists have been championing in recent years.

Salem council approves wage tax to pay for fire, police, homelessness services
Statesman Journal
After four hours of public testimony and debate, Salem City Council voted Monday night to approve a new wage tax to pay for fire, police and homelessness services.
The "Safe Salem" payroll tax will be imposed on wages for individuals working in Salem, regardless of where they live, as early as July 2024. The tax would not be imposed on those earning minimum wage.
A payroll tax calculator is available at egov.cityofsalem.net/PayrollTaxCalculator/. A person earning the average hourly rate of $29.90, which equates to $62,192 a year, would be taxed $42.19 a month — $506.24 a year.

New public health care for 100,000 Oregonians would raise private insurance costs
A new publicly funded insurance plan is headed toward the final step it needs for state approval, in spite of concerns about the impact it will have on Oregon’s health insurance marketplace for individuals and small businesses.
The idea is for the new insurance program to be a lot like the Oregon Health Plan, Oregon’s version of Medicaid: Free health care, provided by Coordinated Care Organizations, with no copays, monthly premiums, or out-of-pocket costs.
It will cover people who earn 138% to 200% of the federal poverty level. That’s too much to qualify for the Oregon Health Plan, but too little to easily afford private insurance. A single person would qualify with an income between $20,000 and $29,000.

Eugene removes an ordinance restricting some natural gas hookups from the upcoming fall ballot
Eugene voters will not be deciding this November whether to approve an ordinance to restrict natural gas.
The Eugene City Council voted Monday night to repeal the measure, which would have banned natural gas hook-ups in new low-rise residential buildings. It comes about five months after the council originally approved the ban outright. It would have taken effect June 30, but petitioners who were financially backed by gas utility NW Natural forced it to a public vote, slated for this fall.

Multnomah County pauses plan to distribute smoking kits to people using drugs
Multnomah County chair Jessica Vega Pederson says she has immediately paused a new initiative to distribute smoking kits, including pipes and tinfoil, to people using drugs.
The advocacy group People for Portland says its members had inundated the county with emails complaining that the policy was enabling fentanyl use.
Peterson says the county health department pursued the public health initiative without “proper implementation protocols.” The health department says it is doing additional legal research before proceeding.

Portland residents horrified as city moves to give smoking supplies to fentanyl addicts: 'Inhumane'
Fox News
Portland is making it easier for fentanyl addicts to get their fix by distributing aluminum foil, straws and pipes to smokers, all while the city continues to grapple with raging drug and homelessness epidemics.
Drug counselor Kevin Dahlgren, horrified by the move, told "Fox & Friends First" Monday that the city lacks solutions to tackle any of its growing number of crises, including the drug problem that's leaving many members of the community outraged.
"This is now their plan is let's just let them all die," he said. "I mean, this is just shocking. This is the deadliest drug in history, and now we're giving them the means to kill themselves faster in these harm reduction clinics."

Oregon students’ academic mastery remains far below pre-pandemic levels, preliminary test scores suggest
Despite billions of state and federal dollars pumped into Oregon schools to help students’ post-pandemic academic recovery, statewide reading, writing and math scores have barely budged, a preview of spring 2023 test results suggests.
According to preliminary data, the share of third graders performing proficiently in reading and math each ticked up by a single percentage point from the previous spring. Among eighth graders, proficiency rates stayed unchanged from the previous year.
The data comes from the Smarter Balanced Assessments, which include both open-ended questions and multiple-choice items and are used by at least nine other states, including Washington.

The preliminary results show just 40% of the state’s third graders scored as proficient in reading and writing and in math this spring, down from a 2019 rate of 47% in English and 46% in math. Among eighth graders, 44% achieved proficiency in reading and a dismal 26% did so in math, down from 53% and 38% respectively in 2019.

Oregon openings for nurses grow by thousands as shortage drags on
Portland Business Journal
In February 2020, right before Covid struck, Oregon hospitals and other health care entities posted 1,850 online help wanted ads for registered nurses.
The pandemic took a toll on what was already an aging workforce, with nurses leaving the bedside in high numbers due to stress and burnout. In April, health care employers posted 5,900 ads for RNs — more than 4,000 above the pre-pandemic level, according to data from the Oregon Employment Department. About half are for hospital jobs. 

2nd Oregon mayor resigns this week after offensive social media posts
The mayor of Baker City in eastern Oregon announced his resignation late Tuesday night following heated controversy over an offensive meme he posted last month that depicted four pride flags rearranged to form a swastika.
Mayor Matt Diaz did not address the controversy when he resigned at a city council meeting, telling residents only that he would be moving out of the city of 10,000 people and therefore could no longer serve.
Diaz is the second Oregon mayor to resign this week after Newport Mayor Dean Sawyer stepped down Monday amid public outcry over hateful posts he made to a private Facebook group for retired or active law enforcement members.

As Unusually Substantial Recall Gathers Steam, Allegations and Countercharges Fly
Willamette Week
But last week, UFCW, Oregon’s largest private sector union, with 30,000 members, turned in 6,600 signatures aimed at ejecting the longest-serving House Democrat. It needs 4,600 of those to be valid for a recall election. Officials at the Oregon Secretary of State’s Office will begin validating signatures July 17.
UFCW lobbyist Mike Selvaggio says Holvey has turned his back on unions. “He’s put up hurdles on labor bills that have not been there for business bills,” Selvaggio says. “He’s been there for nearly 20 years and, after a certain amount of time, I think you start taking things for granted.”

DMV camera breakdown prevents issuing of IDs, driver’s licenses
Oregon Capital Chronicle
Oregon’s Department of Motor Vehicles has suffered another breakdown: Its cameras stopped working for a few days, preventing the agency from issuing IDs and driver’s licenses.
The system was down from midday last Wednesday to midday Friday and then stopped working for a time on Monday, said spokeswoman Michelle Godfrey.
“The outage prevented us from performing credential transactions that required a photo (to) be taken, but we continued all other transactions,” she said. 

Work on wildfire risk map version 2.0 now under way in Oregon
After a failed rollout of a state wildfire risk map last year, Oregon researchers and state officials are beginning work on a revised map.
What was called the “wildfire risk map” is now the “wildfire hazard map.” The map is intended to educate homeowners about their exposure to wildfire risk, determine where fire mitigation resources should be prioritized and identify where future state rules on home hardening and defensible space will apply.
The name change reflects a shift by the designers to point out this map depicts the risk of wildfire based on environmental factors out of the control of individuals.

Oregon approves $100 million to build nearly 650 affordable homes
Oregon Capital Chronicle
The Oregon Housing Stability Council has approved spending more than $100 million to build nearly 650 affordable homes in urban and rural areas throughout the state.
The council approved funding requests for 10 affordable housing developments during its Friday meeting, prioritizing requests from communities that lost homes during the 2020 wildfires. The $103.5 million approved is less than half the amount requested by developers around the state.
Andrea Bell, director of Oregon Housing and Community Services, said the grants are a crucial step toward addressing Oregon’s housing crisis. A 2021 study estimated that Oregon needs to build more than 580,000 homes by 2040, and nearly half of the new homes need to be affordable for people earning less than median income.

Oregon seeks to penalize Intel $31,000 over failed pollution controls
Oregon regulators plan to levy a $31,000 penalty against Intel for turning off pollution-control equipment for more than two months at its Hillsboro manufacturing campus.
“The alleged violations posed a risk of harm to human health and the environment,” the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality wrote in a notice to the chipmaker Tuesday.
The agency asserted that Intel violated its atmospheric discharge permit, noting that uncontrolled emissions from its factories continued for 63 days and included hydrogen fluoride and hydrogen chloride – and possibly fluorine, chlorine and hydrogen bromide.

New Oregon data shows increase in drug overdose deaths, Fentanyl could be the cause
Statesman Journal
The Oregon Health Authority’s new overdose prevention data dashboard shows an increase in drug overdose deaths from 2020 to 2021, with the highest rate of deaths being amongst Oregon’s Black and African American communities.
While white and American Indian and Alaskan Native Oregonians had a comparable rate of overdose deaths, American Indian and Alaskan Native Oregon residents had the highest rate of hospital and emergency room visits due to an overdose.
The data dashboard shows the highest rates of overdose deaths in Josephine, Multnomah, and Klamath counties.

Oregon senators ask for 6 month pause on Baker City maternity unit closure
U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley have asked the St. Alphonsus Health System to keep open the only maternity unit in Baker County Oregon a little longer.
It’s scheduled to close July 31.
In a letter to the health system leadership, Wyden and Merkley say they’re concerned that expectant parents will have to travel 45 miles through a mountain pass that is treacherous in winter to receive maternity care.
