A New Month - New Beginnings

Honorary Page

STUDENTS! Two months left to become an HONORARY PAGE

Page service is a unique honor with a rich history. The first pages were apprentice knights. Pages served while they received scholastic, social and military education. Pages who successfully completed their studies then became squires and could continue their education. Hardworking squires were rewarded with the honor of knighthood. Pages were first associated with lawmaking bodies when they began appearing in royal courts. The term "honorary page" is applied to our guest attendants today because it recalls the honorable status and goals of pages in history.

Oregon Cattlemen's Association

OREGON BEEF DAY at The Capitol

THANK YOU Oregon Cattlewomen and Oregon Cattlemen’s Association for the Tri-tip sandwich lunch! A whopping 500lbs of beef and fixin’s were snatched up and enjoyed - by just about everyone. A HUGE hit!  The long line proves – BEEF It’s What’s For Dinner (Lunch).

I was honored to welcome the Oregon Cattlewomen, Oregon Cattlemen’s Association, and all those here this week to support Oregon’s Beef industry, one of our largest agricultural sectors in Oregon.

We had the opportunity to recognize our ranchers around the state, for their conservation, restoration, and economic contributions in all four corners of Oregon. Ranchers spend significant time and resources ensuring that their lands continue to be sustainable for generations to come.

CAP Kills Jobs

CAP AND TRADE AMENDMENT

FAILS TO ADDRESS KEY CONCERNS

On Monday, lawmakers released their much-anticipated amendment to the cap and trade bill. The amendment is supposedly the result of hours of public testimony lawmakers received during hearings held in the Capitol and in communities across the state. Unfortunately, the amendment offers little more than lip service to the thousands of Oregonians who testified and submitted comments on the bill.

Climate, energy plans need realism, not catchphrases

“Very few citizens understand the radical economic transformations that these plans will bring. Hiding the costs with a narrative of “triple-bottom-line” and “clean energy jobs” is not helpful in the long run.”

Eating local is fresh, but is it better for the environment?

“Crop efficiency is climate- and location-dependent. Some crops actually have less environmental impact if grown in their preferred climate and transported long distances than if they are grown locally. A common sub-theme of locavores is organic farming, which uses more (mostly unregulated) chemicals, has more crop waste and uses more acreage. These are not positive environmental effects.”

Climate crisis needs stronger solution

“The bill reeks of rich, progressive urbanites misunderstanding rural and struggling Oregon. It lacks incentives to encourage and support individual changes. Those most able to change wouldn’t feel the pinch.”
