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 ...
