SALEM, Oregon - Two bills climate action bills advanced in the Oregon legislature this past week, passing their respective policy committees in the state Senate and House. While dismal news just keeps pouring out of the nation’s capital on climate change, states are increasingly showing momentum to lead the way. Trump and Pruitt are on a collision course with science and dead set on putting America last in clean energy innovation, giving away public lands and waters to fossil fuel companies and doing the bidding of their dirty energy campaign donors. But states like Oregon can rise to the occasion to keep clean energy momentum alive. The two bills have some differences that will need to be ironed out, but both would limit carbon pollution from the state’s biggest polluters and seek to allow Oregon to join a western carbon market that has been up and running since 2012 in California and has more recently successfully added two Canadian provinces: Quebec and Ontario. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon — On Friday, the Oregon environmental officials increased protections for the marbled murrelet, a small seabird from the North Pacific known as the "enigma of the Pacific" because it lives and hunts in the ocean but nests far inland in the high canopy of mossy, old-growth forests. The 4-2 vote by the Oregon Commission on Fish and Wildlife to boost the relative of the puffin from threatened to endangered status under state law was the latest development in a long-running debate about how to manage a secretive species that breeds in dense Pacific rainforests that are also prime logging grounds. State environmental officials must now draft guidelines for ways to maintain bird population numbers, including possibly limiting logging in nesting areas owned, managed or leased by the state. Logging interests reacted with dismay, calling the move premature and a further blow to their industry. Timber harvests, once a powerful economic engine in the rural Pacific Northwest, have declined dramatically since the 1990s because of protections for the marbled murrelet and the spotted owl. ...

PORTLAND, Oregon — FBI special agent W. Joseph Astarita was indicted for misconduct involving the murder of Robert LaVoy Finicum, one of the occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Family members of rancher Finicum who was shot and killed by police during the 2016 armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge have sued the U.S. government, Federal Bureau of Investigation, state of Oregon and others claiming he was willfully “executed.” The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Portland nearly two years to the day after Robert “LaVoy” Finicum, 54, was shot dead by Oregon State Police on Jan. 26, 2016, along a snow-covered road near the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. “As it turns out, he was deliberately executed by a pre-planned government ambush, after he had exited his vehicle with his hands up,” the plaintiffs allege in their 48-page lawsuit. Investigators determined that state troopers were 'justified' in shooting Finicum three times in the back after he exited his vehicle at a police roadblock, put his hands in the air and then reached toward a handgun in his inner jacket pocket.
