Congress AND the Feds Investigate Kitzhaber: Friday evening, hours after Democrat John Kitzhaber announced that he will resign effective February 18, the State of Oregon was hit with a double dose of federal problems.

Cover Oregon: Another Victim Of Kitzhaber’s Politics

Cover Oregon: Another Victim Of Kitzhaber’s Politics

Like many others, it seemed curious to me that the notorious Cover Oregon website was opened to insurance agents but never to private individuals. Oracle, who built much of the site, says it came down to politics over proficiency. Software vendor Oracle provided information last week to the U.S. House and Energy Committee claiming the website […]

More details are emerging in the ongoing drama of fingerpointing between Governor John Kitzhaber, Cover Oregon, ObamaCare and software developer Oracle. KATU reported on Sunday evening that, according to Oracle, the Cover Oregon site that they built was functional and ready to use in February 2014, and was only shut down for political reasons by […]

Retroactive Tax Credit? Maybe.

Retroactive Tax Credit? Maybe.

In a development that seems to have been seriously underreported, Oregon gov. Retread last week issued a press release in which he states that if you tried to purchase health insurance through Cover Oregon but failed, you may be eligible for a retroactive tax credit if you subsequently purchased a plan directly from an insurance provider. Those who attempted […]

    Senator Mike Padden, chairman of the Senate Law and Justice Committee, announced that he plans to look into allegations that Sound Transit deliberately misled voters on ST3. Senators Steve O’Ban and Dino Rossi requested the investigation in a letter to Padden and Senator Curtis King, chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee. “We are concerned that […]
  • Water and budget, breakfast podcast, NWIRP May 15, 2017
    Welcome to candidate filing week, where like MLB Opening Day, hope springs eternal!  Unfortunately, the Mariners are now farther back in the AL West than they have been at this point in the season since 2004.  A word of wisdom perhaps to candidates from the M’s: not everything goes according to plan during a campaign. […]
  • Column: Keep Safe Injection Sites out of King County May 15, 2017
    Last week we launched Initiative 27, an effort to ban Dow Constantine’s proposed heroin injection sites in King County and demand proven, compassionate solutions to get people off drugs and save lives before any more are lost from this opioid crisis. Our coalition is broad and diverse. We have people from all walks of life […]
  • Sometimes the Answer Is “Yes” May 22, 2017
    As the Antiplanner has noted before, Betteridge’s law states that “Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no.” But there are always exceptions, and one can be found above a recent Seattle Times article about a recent light-rail ballot measure, asking “Did Sound Transit mislead legislators and voters?” […]
  • Making the Problem Worse May 18, 2017
    Oregon is responding to its housing affordability crisis by doing all the wrong things. The crisis is due to a shortage in supply which in turn is due to urban-growth boundaries. So the legislature legalized inclusionary zoning ordinances and Portland passed one. Such ordinances require developers to provide a certain percent of the homes they […]
  • How About Just Tear Them Down May 18, 2017
    Business Insider must have been channeling some urban planning magazine last week when it asked what could be done with the hundreds of shopping malls suffering from the great retail apocalypse caused by Amazon and other on-line retailers. The publication’s answers leaned heavily to uses that need government subsidies, including art galleries, classrooms, community gathering […]
