A Wealth of Choices in Oregon 1

BY Josh Kurtz

For the past few cycles, Republicans have dreamed about finding the ideal challenger to Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.): a wealthy candidate with political contacts, able to appeal to Portland business leaders, suburban moderates and grassroots conservatives alike. This year, the GOP has two candidates who fit that description. The question is whether the circumstance is an embarrassment of riches, or simply an embarrassment.

U.S. Dept. of Labor Forces Union Disclosure

Summary In December 2002, the Department of Labor proposed regulatory changes that would protect union members by improving transparency and disclosure. The proposal would modernize the annual financial reports unions file with the Office of Labor-Management Standards (OLMS). These reports are required under the 1959 Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act, often referred to as the Landrum-Griffin Act. During the public comment period, the Department received more than 35,000 comments and carefully considered all of them during the crafting of the final rule.
