ODOT Sued After Bus Crash

April 9, 2013 7:06 p.m.

Last December a charter bus from Vancouver, British Columbia, crashed on I-84 just east of Pendleton. The accident killed nine people and injured 38. Now lawyers representing a survivor, and the estates of three of the people who died, are suing the Oregon Department of Transportation. According to the Associated Press:

The lawsuit says the department was negligent for failing to warn drivers of unsafe conditions, not requiring commercial vehicles to taken another route, not adequately plowing and sanding snow, and failing to equip that stretch of the interstate with barriers strong enough to prevent a bus from leaving the roadway.
We'll talk to a local attorney about the legal precedence for this case.

Researchers Detail A Possible Oregon Carbon Tax

March 12, 2013 7:15 p.m.

Economists with Portland State University's Northwest Economic Research Center have just released a report on how an Oregon tax on carbon (pdf) might work. The researchers based their scenarios on the carbon tax in British Columbia, which they implemented in 2008. The BC tax was designed to be "tax neutral," meaning other taxes were reduced as the carbon tax was implemented.  There are currently four bills that deal with a carbon tax in the Oregon legislature. A spokesman for Associated Oregon Industries says it's too early to tell whether the business group would support or oppose those proposals. But John Charles with the Cascade Policy Institute says Oregon already taxes carbon and that further taxes would be unnecessary and harmful. Report co-author Jenny Liu says that their analysis shows an Oregon carbon tax could actually boost the economy.
