The most important piece of legislation around the Metolius Basin went down earlier this afternoon according to Blue Oregon Blogger Carla Axtman who blogged about the vote as it unfolded on the House Floor. Officially HB 3298 failed on 30-29 vote. The bill would have designated the Metolius as state Area of Critical Concern and effectively derailed a pair of destination resorts that Jefferson County has courted. According to Axtman,  a parliamentary move will likely allow the bill's sponsor, Rep. Brian Clem to bring the bill back perhaps as early as this week for reconsideration. In the meantime, Dems will be working to scratch up the necessary final vote to ensure passage. Five Dems, including speaker of the House, Dave Hunt broke rank with the rest of the party with No votes.

  • DADT, Gay-Bashing and the "Icky-ness" Factor

    For the past week or so, “Zeo” of the NW Republican blog has had his jock strap in a knot over the prospect of Congress repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” rule. To hear Zeo tell it, if DADT is repealed and gays are allowed to serve openly in the US military it will mean the end not only of our armed forces but of America, its economic system and civilization in general.
