Summer Recess Conversation: Kurt Schrader

OPB | Aug. 13, 2013 12:06 p.m. | Updated: Sept. 11, 2013 1:18 a.m.§iontree=3,6

The U.S. Congress is in recess and its members are now back in their home districts. We’ll catch up with Oregon’s delegation, starting with the 5th District’s Kurt Schrader, a Democrat and member of the Blue Dog Coalition.

Just before the recess, Schrader saw a bill he helped write with Oregon representatives Peter DeFazio and Greg Walden pass out of the Natural Resources Committee. The bill, if it passes, will allow Oregon loggers to more than double their harvest of lumber in Federal forests formerly part of the Oregon and California Railroad. Oregon Wild has called the plan “a bad deal.”

We’ll talk with Representative Schrader about that bill, his attempts to foster bipartisanship, the federal budget, and much more.
