Senator Jeff Kruse Comments On First Week Of Oregon Legislative Session

We are at the end of the first week of the Legislative Session, and it has been interesting. While each Session develops its own “personality” over time, for the most part they usually start out slow and build pace over time. The feeling and intensity in the building this week has made it feel like […]

Guest Post: Rep. Dennis Richardson – Oregon Budget Creation Process Begins for 2013-15

The State of Oregon budgets on a two-year “biennial” basis. The current State Budget for 2011-13 ends on June 30th.  The primary purpose for the current Legislative Session is to draft, vote on and pass the 2013-15 State Budget, which will begin July 1st.  In fact, although thousands of bills will be heard in Senate […]

#LapDogMedia Alert – Stand By For Theme Shift | FreedomWorks

Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been inundated with stories in the mainstream media trumpeting some variation on the idea that, “It’s all over, Obama‘s reelection is inevitable, Romney has a much tougher path to 270 electoral votes” and so on. Now comes a fresh line of attack from the leftist media. This week’s […]

Congress Empowers President To Make Appointments Without Senate Confirmation

1326219091782

Congress just gave the Executive Branch the power to fill over 3000 positions with no confirmation hearings or oversight from the Senate.  What on earth possessed the Republican-controlled House to go along with this scheme? Fox News reports: The House gave final congressional approval Tuesday to a bill that would save the slow-paced Senate some […]

Obama Defies Constitution To Make ‘Recess Appointment’ While Senate Is In Session

ConstitutionShredder (2)

Obama is defying the constitution’s “separation of powers” by skirting the constitutionally required Senate confirmation hearings to make a “recess appointment” WHILE THE SENATE IS IN SESSION. This is an impeachable offense. If Obama is resorting to this level of dictatorial abuses of power in an election year, just imagine what naked force he’d unleash […]

  • Capital budget’s impact on school construction funding July 21, 2017
    The third special session ended yesterday without the passage of the $4.2 billion capital budget. Legislators were unable to agree on a water-rights bill to address the Supreme Court’s Hirst decision, an issue rural representatives had tried to raise repeatedly throughout the session. “We’ve never seen anything like this before, but the stakes have never […]
  • Ranker: Unconscionable that Senate Republicans blocked vote on capital budget July 21, 2017
    Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Orcas Island, released this statement after Senate Republicans refused to allow a vote on the state capital budget: It is incredibly unfortunate that on the final day of the special legislative session, the Senate Republicans placed their political agenda ahead of the wellbeing of our children, mentally ill, homeless, and public and […]
  • Capital budget, Ryan Calkins, #dadhacks July 20, 2017
    With luck, today will be the last day of the 2017 legislative session, giving us a whopping 12 days before the August primary.  We’ve got a few data points for you, both qualitative and quantitative, on the session and the ballot box in this edition of the Morning Wire. As always, thanks for reading our […]
  • Top Trump Envoy Heads to Israel After Terror Attacks July 23, 2017
    Senior Trump administration Israel adviser Jason Greenblatt will head to Israel Sunday evening, just days after violence broke out in Jerusalem and Palestinian terrorists killed several Israeli citizens, according to senior Trump administration officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.

  • “Stability” Is Another Word for “Lack of Accountability” July 22, 2017
    A bill in the California legislature would give Caltrain, the commuter trains that connect San Jose with San Francisco, “permanent financial stability.” That’s good news if you think you will be riding Caltrains one thousand years from now, but it’s bad news for the taxpayers who will have to “permanently”–however long that is–pay for running […]
  • HUD Backs Off on Housing Mandate July 21, 2017
    In a case with national ramifications, the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has effectively given up on its efforts to impose high-density housing on low-density suburbs in the name of racial integration. HUD had ordered Westchester County, New York, to build low-income housing in response to claims that county zoning led to segregated […]
  • Will Miami Settle for Modern Transportation? July 20, 2017
    “Can Miami afford more rail?” asks the Miami Herald. “Or will it settle for buses?” That’s like asking if you can afford an IBM 700 mainframe computer from the 1950s or if you will settle for a MacBook Pro. Both buses and laptop computers are far less expensive than rails and mainframes, but the former […]
