Senator Kim Thatcher on the Oregon Senators' walkout: Cap And Trade 6/30/19. "...Not only was HB 2020 coming to the Senate floor yesterday, a bill that grants driver licenses to illegals was also scheduled. Both of them contain an emergency clause which precludes a referendum by voters who want to put them on the ballot...just a few years ago, the Oregon legislature passed a driver license bill that was successfully put on the ballot where it was handily rejected by voters 2:1. Every county, except Multnomah where Portland resides, rejected driver licenses for illegals..."

Fatal Conceit - System rigged against the public, Oregon State Senator Dennis Linthicum - District 28, June Newsletter. "The Democrat super-majority is advocating for the round-up and capture of elected representatives by the Oregon State Police. Additionally, they are proposing to fine each of us $500 per day. Then, to drive the knife deeper into the wound, the Senate President scheduled floor sessions for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which allowed the super-majority to levy an extra three days of fines. The sheer level of avarice is stupefying..."

It is mostly dependent on fossil fuels, as is much of our residential heating. Are you ready to give up your cars and trucks? How about farmers and ranchers with their diesel powered tractors?..."

National Popular Vote versus local rights, by Oregon State Senator Dennis Linthicum, H&N Guest Opinion 6/18/19. "...There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 3,084 of them. Clinton won 57...In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond) Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country...These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles. The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles...Large, densely-populated, cities such as, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, etc. shouldn’t be allowed to usurp the opinions of the rest of the country..."

*** Agenda for the Klamath River Compact Commission Meeting on June 18, 2019. From SCWUA: "The Oregon Water Resources Commission called a meeting of the Klamath Compact Commission on June 18, 2019 at OIT in Klamath Falls at 11AM to 1:30 Mt Scott Room. They haven’t had a meeting since 2006 but are now calling for a meeting  with the objective of re instituting the Klamath Commission.  It will be important to all to show up at that meeting to hear what they have to say. It had limited circulation." Presenters: KWUA attorney/director, California Water Resources, Oregon Water Resources,

A response to the general counsel of KRRC: Why Klamath Compact decision-making matters, FERC’s own regulations (18 C.F.R. § 9.2) require FERC to determine the “qualifications of the transferee [here, KRRC] to hold such license.” KRRC is not qualified, because it was created in violation of federal law."

Oregon Cap & Trade Advances. Air horn protest can’t shutdown climate bill, Oregon Capital Bureau (in Herald and News) June 13, 2019. "Johnson, the most conservative of the Senate Democrats, has been a vocal opponent of the bill, saying it would destroy the state’s economy...Republicans have been staunchly against the idea, saying it will decimate the rural way of life, where people work in mills and factories that would be hurt by cap and trade. They drive longer distances, making the estimated 16 cent-per-gallon increase in gas costs more significant... It will kill jobs, it will hurt families, businesses and employees, and it will incur extreme costs without providing benefit to the environment..."
