Public Hearing on Tesoro Savage Oil Terminal

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 01/11/2016
A public hearing on the proposed Tesoro Savage oil terminal in Vancouver along the Columbia River is scheduled for tomorrow in Ridgefield, Washington.
The project, if completed, would ship about three hundred sixty thousand barrels of oil per day, almost half as much crude oil as the entire Keystone XL Pipeline.
Last week, more than one thousand people attended the first public hearing on the terminal, most of them opposed.
KBOO reporter Doug McVay spoke with Don Orange, a Vancouver business owner and an opponent of the oil terminal, to learn more.
Tomorrow’s hearing will be held from 5:00 PM until 11:00 PM, at the Clark County Event Center at the county fairgrounds in Ridgefield, Washington.
A third public hearing is scheduled for Thursday, January 14th, at the Centerplace Regional Event Center in Spokane Valley, Washington.

Supreme Court Hearing on Right-to-Work

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Mon, 01/11/2016
The Supreme Court heard a case today that could have wide ranging implications for union members across the country.
Several conservative judges on the court have made statements indicating they would rule against the unions, but although arguments were heard today, a decision won’t be issued for several months.
Since 1977, the Court has said non-union employees can be required to pay a portion of union dues to cover the cost of collective bargaining and prevent "free riders" — workers who get the benefits of a union contract without paying for it.
Now, in a case brought by non-union teachers in California hoping to get the earlier decision overturned, the justices are asked to decide whether even that requirement violates free expression.
KBOO’s Robin Ryan spoke with Ken Zinn from National Nurses United for more on this story.

Arguments for the case Friedrichs versus California Teachers Association are set to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court this Monday.
The case is another in a series of legal challenges throughout the country targeting public-sector unions in recent years.
The issue surrounding Monday’s case deals with whether mandatory union fees violate the First Amendment.
In response, nurses from Washington to California will gather on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court Monday morning to warn that relaxing the union fee system further poses a significant threat to public health.
In this clip, David Koesters of KBOO News speaks to the Ken Zinn of National Nurses United.

Deregulatory Bills Pass House of Representatives

program: 
Evening News
program date: 
Thu, 01/07/2016
Two anti-regulatory bills were approved in House yesterday and today along strongly bipartisan lines.
The HB 1155, known as the SCRUB Act, and HB 712, known as the Sunshine for Deregulatory Decrees and Settlements Act, were approved by the Republican majority en-route to a likely death in the Senate and certain veto by President Obama.
However, both bills represent a strong deregulatory zeitgeist on the right, and have strong backing from industrial lobbyists.
For more, KBOO reporter Sam Bouman spoke with Amit Narang, a regulatory policy advocate with Public Citizen, a consumer watchdog group based in Washington, DC.

US Flint Water Quality Issues

Wed, 01/06/2016
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency Tuesday, but not until after calls for a federal investigation into the matter of elevated levels of lead found in the water for nearly a hundred thousand people in the city of Flint.
Residents in the area began reporting water quality issues just after the city’s emergency manager switched sources for the town’s water supply late in 2014 from Lake Huron to the Flint River.
Progress Michigan called on the U.S. Attorney’s office to launch an investigation into the matter.
A member of their communications team, Sam Inglot, spoke with KBOO Reporter Robin Ryan about what led up to the current situation in Flint:

Landslides in Oregon City

Wed, 01/06/2016
Two apartment buildings in Oregon City are slowly sliding down the hillside, according to a local geologist.
The residents of the apartments had to evacuate just before Christmas, and have been unable to return to their apartments since then.
Retired geology professor Scott Burns predicted a landslide on this very spot, when he did a study in the 1990s, and recommended at the time that a planned new development be cancelled.
But the development went ahead, and now, Professor Burns says, it is collapsing just as he predicted.
He spoke with KBOO’s Jenka Soderberg today about the history of the Oregon City site, and what’s happening now:
