The horrors of war don't end when the last gun falls silent. Unexploded shells, landmines, and other wartime hazards continue to take lives long after hostilities cease. Depleted uranium - or "DU" - one of the lesser know of these hazards, is spreading disease and death well beyond the battlefields on which it was once deployed. Originally viewed as a waste product in the production of fissionable nuclear material, depleted uranium was found to be effective in the manufacture of armor piercing projectiles and bombs. DU armaments are in use by the United States, Russia and several other nations. The U.S. has used DU armaments in the First Gulf War, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Winners and Losers in the 2009 Oregon Budget

program date: 
Wed, 01/07/2009

As the economic landscape worsens, lawmakers face the daunting task of deciding how to keep Oregon running with a shrinking pool of dollars. The most recent forecast by the Oregon Office of Economic Analysis sees the recession deepening over the next 12 months with unemployment increasing beyond the current 7.3 percent with a commensurate decline in state revenue from personal income taxes. Reduced business activity will also cause a drop in revenue from corporate taxes. The "budget hole" for the coming 2009-2011 period is estimated to be at least $1.2 billion.
