Voter Repression In Indiana Due to New ID Laws

Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 05/05/2008

The state of Indiana held its election primary today, amidst allegations of voter disenfranchisement.
Last week the US Supreme Court upheld Indiana's voter ID requirements, which are the strictest in the nation.
Election observation groups in Indiana have noted that a large number of students and young people have been turned away from the polls for not presenting an Indiana state drivers license as ID.
Becky Jenkins is a student in Indiana:

Indiana's voter ID law has been widely criticized for preventing eligible voters from being allowed to cast their ballot.
There has never been a case of voter fraud by voters in Indiana, but Republican lawmakers pushed hard for the ID requirements, which mainly affect Democratic voters.

PDX Judge to Decide On Columbia Basin Plan for Salmon

The Bush administration has issued its fifth court-ordered plan for making Columbia Basin hydroelectric dams and southern Idaho irrigation projects safe for endangered salmon.

    The plan, released by the National Fisheries Service, outlines modifications to the dams, including changes in dam operations, expanded and improved hatchery operations, predator control and improvements to river habitat.

But conservationists and fishing advocates say this latest plan ignores science, economics, and the people who rely on the fish for their livelihoods.

Todd True is the Senior Managing attorney with EarthJustice:

The next step will be up to U.S. District Judge James Redden in Portland to decide whether the plan meets the demands of the Endangered Species Act.

Redden rejected the federal government's 2004 salmon plan, because it did not meet federal mandates for protecting salmon.

April was National Fair Housing Month, commemorating the April 11, 1968 enactment of the Fair Housing Act by Lyndon Johnson. The Oregon Fair Housing Council marked the 40th anniversary last Wednesday with the first ever 'fair housing' bus tour of a US city.

The tour took participants through Portland, with a view toward historical housing discrimination.

Some of the forms that housing discrimination has taken include so-called 'urban renewal' programs, population displacement, and real estate profiteering.

Sherill Brown-Frost, Director of Member Services for the National Fair Housing Alliance, spoke to tour participants
While the bus tour did not cover a myriad of current challenges such as Brownfields, gentrification in North Portland or increasing homelessness downtown, it did point out concrete examples of where and when discrimination has occurred in Portland on the basis of race, age, color, or other factors
