The blue wave also made blue states like Oregon even ...

SALEM, Oregon - Governor Kate Brown Friday said that Oregon's switch to a system that automatically registers voters a “phenomenal success.” She said the move led to a more diversified electorate in the state as well as an increase in voter registration among minorities. “Registration is a barrier to people participating in this process,” Brown said while delivering remarks at Politico’s “State Solutions Conference.” “Voting is a fundamental right of being a citizen, and people across the country should have the ability to access this fundamental right without barriers like registration,” she said. Brown also said the initiative helped Oregon, which once sat at the bottom of state rankings for the number of registered voters who were people of color, earn the second-highest ranking for the number of people of color registered to vote in the country. Brown said “the new voters under the automatic voter registration system … are less urban, they are less wealthy, and they are much more diverse than our typical voters that either register online or through the paper process.” The Oregon Democrat also partly credited her state’s voting system, which was implemented in ...

From http://thedrive.com: Yesterday, we reported on an emergency arrested landing made by an Oregon Air National Guard F-15C from the 142nd Fighter Wing. The jet had been in the air for some time before it made its way back to its home base at Portland International Airport and landed via catching the emergency cable with its tail hook on runway 28L. Now, The War Zone has learned that the aircraft in question was part of an alert training mission and was fully armed with live air-to-air missiles when it took off. During the emergency, the decision was made to fire off all of its armament into the Pacific Ocean before returning to land, an operation that is apparently quite rare in the F-15 community. The aircraft, which had the callsign "ROCK 42," a moniker associated directly with the alert mission, had a gear issue upon takeoff with one of its main gear failing to retract. Our sources close to the F-15 community have told us the particular issue with this aircraft's landing gear was of questionable severity. We won't go into any more detail on that aspect of the story at this time, but the diagnosis of the issue, or lack thereof, ended up prompting the F-15C to fly out ...

PORTLAND, Oregon — On Thursday the Oregon legislature considered a bill to allow exporting marijuana to neighboring states where pot is also legal. Advocates of the bill say it might give Oregon a way to relieve its oversupply and create its own brand. However, the U.S. attorney for Oregon warned against it. But the bill may not open marijuana business between Oregon and California, Nevada and Washington, the three states near Oregon where it's legal. Others see it as a way to begin laying groundwork for when the federal government either decriminalizes marijuana or decides not to prosecute if pot-legal states export to each other. One advocate suggested going even further, since several countries, including Canada and Uruguay, have legalized marijuana. "I would like to see an amendment that would allow international agreements in this bill, if federal law allows, so Oregon can cash in immediately without having to wait for the next legislative session," Sarah Duff, spokeswoman for several pro-marijuana groups, said in testimony to the Senate judiciary committee. U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams told The Associated Press on Thursday that the bill does not change t ...

Oregon is producing twice as much cannabis as people are using, according to a new study from the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. And Oregon has been overproducing marijuana for a while — leaving more than six years’ worth of supply sitting on shelves and at farms. On top of that, the Oregon secretary of state’s office just released an audit saying Oregon’s system for regulating marijuana needs to be strengthened. The oversupply of cannabis has driven down prices. Since recreational cannabis was legalized three years ago, prices have dropped from $10 a gram to less than $5 a gram. That may be good for consumers, but the worry is weak regulations plus a massive oversupply will fuel the black market. Imagine the farmer who spent all year growing her crop, only to learn it’s not worth much. That is, it’s not worth much in Oregon. There’s a big temptation to put the oversupply in the back of a truck, drive south to California or east to Idaho, and sell it to someone on a street corner. But the federal government has made it very clear that a thriving black market and illegal exports are likely to lead to a federal crackdown. The Trump administration has rescinded ea ...

Two police officers were "legally justified" in the deadly shooting of a parent at an Oregon middle school this month, officials said Thursday, as video of the fatal encounter was released. The Lane County District Attorney's Office said the incident occurred as Eugene police officers Aaron Johns and Steve Timm were trying to arrest 30-year-old Charles Landeros after a custody argument at Cascade Middle School. Landeros, seen wearing a "smash the patriarchy" shirt in video released by police, refused to leave the premises when asked by school resource officers.
A struggle later erupted when the officers moved Landeros outside. Lane County District Attorney Patty Perlow said, prior to the shooting, Landeros pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the officers, KPTV reported. As the officers tried to wrestle the gun away, Landeros fired two shots. Timm then returned fire, squeezing off a single s ...

Oregon’s land use regulators have temporarily expanded restrictions on solar arrays on high-value farmland over the objections of advocates who claim they’ll impede development. Solar facilities larger than 12 acres on high-value farmland have required conditional use permits in Oregon, but ambiguities in the regulatory language raised concerns among farm and conservation groups. For example, one project was approved without a permit last year because the county government determined it didn’t “preclude” agriculture use, since bees could still forage beneath the solar panels. In response to these concerns, the Land Conservation and Development Commission issued temporary rules clarifying that solar projects cannot “use, occupy or cover” more than 12 acres, regardless of whether they “preclude” farm uses. During a Jan. 24 meeting in Salem, Ore., the commission voted to approve additional provisions prohibiting most solar development on top-quality soils: those defined as Class I, Class II, prime and unique. However, the revised rules will allow solar facilities of up to 20 acres on such soils if the project includes a “farm use element” for the project’s duration, as ...
