Mike Nearman Interview

program: 
Between Us
program date: 
Sun, 01/10/2016
Mike Nearman and I talked two years ago, just before he won his seat in House District 23 from Representative Jim Thompson.  He's running for reelection and since then, Nearman has held fast to conservative principles of reduced taxes, dedication to the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and unwaivering faith in the advocacy of the individual.  Don Merrill talks with Mike Nearman about these and more touchy issues including Portland's Terminal 6 and Oregon's venture into retail marijuana.

Citizen's United opened the floodgates for the anonymous campaign cash that has transformed the electoral landscape of America.

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.

Who are the Malheur occupiers? Analysis by Spencer Sunshine

The media spotlight has turned to the small rural town of Burns in Eastern Oregon, where a small group of white, armed anti-government "militiamen" occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge headquarters on Saturday. Led by sons of Cliven Bundy, who faced down Bureau of Land Management officers at gunpoint last year, the group of 15 to 25 men claims to be supporting two local ranchers, Dwight and Steven Hammond, recently re-sentenced to five years in prison for arson under domestic anti-terrorism legislation. However, it is unclear how much support they actually have in the local community, and their goals seem to be much broader than just supporting the Hammonds, including the dismantling of federal ownership of lands in the West.
