The Oregon House has approved a plan to expand state health coverage to an additional 80,000 uninsured children and 35,000 low-income adults.
     The measure calls for raising taxes on hospital revenues and establishing a tax on health insurance premiums to pay for the expansion.
     Democratic lawmakers and Governor Ted Kulongoski said the measure provides a way to expand health coverage at a time when the economy is struggling.
     Republicans opposed the bill, saying the taxes will raise health care costs for businesses, and make it tougher for some to provide health benefits for their workers.
The measure is now headed to the Senate.

Mayor Sam Adams and Portland's new Climate Action Plan

Tue, 06/09/2009

While Portland may be ahead of the curve in taking on the challenge of climate change, there's still a lot of work to be done.

Portland was one of the first American cities to take climate change seriously. In 2007, Portland was the only large metro area in the U.S. that actually reduced its carbon emissions below 1990 levels. But that doesn't mean we can just rest on our laurels. If this region is to succeed in radically reducing our carbon footprint, there’s a lot more work to be done. This morning Portland Mayor  Sam Adams joins Locus Focus host Barbara Bernstein to unveil Portland's new Climate Action Plan.
