Laws and Regulations
In 2001, under HB 3744, Oregon's recovery goals were revised to set a 45% recovery goal for 2005 and 50% recovery by 2009. Previously, legislation adopted in 1991 had set a goal of 50% recovery by 2000. In 2002, the statewide recovery rate was 46.6%. Under the 2001 law, each county or "wasteshed" has separate recovery goals for 2005 and 2009. The goals range from a low of 8% in 2005 and 10% in 2009 to a high of 62% in 2005 and 64% in 2009. These goals are required, but if a wasteshed fails to achieve its 2005 or 2009 goal, the only requirement is that the wasteshed must conduct a technical review of existing policies or programs and determine changes needed to meet the recovery goals.

Mr. Bush's "Clear Skies" proposal, designed to reduce the sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, and mercury emitted by coal-burning power plants and other industries, does not include carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas (GHG).
In the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia last week, 12 states (California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington), along with the cities of Baltimore, New York, and Washington, argued for reducing GHGs under current law.
"The Clean Air Act specifically requires EPA to reduce emissions of pollutants that threaten public health and welfare, and names impacts on climate as one of the threats," says Philip Clapp, president of the National Environmental Trust, one of the private groups supporting the states' lawsuit. "We expect the court will determine that EPA not only has the authority to reduce global-warming pollution, but has a duty to do so." ... For CO2, there's no catalytic converter," said Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Clark. "There's no catch mechanism. The only way to reduce them is through fuel economy. The point is it would usurp NHTSA's authority." Siding with the administration here are many industry groups as well as 11 other states, including ones that produce oil and gas, automobiles, and coal-powered energy.http://www.csmonitor.com/2005/0413/p03s01-uspo.html
Platinum-group minerals in alpine chromitites from southwestern Oregon

Sandia Natl. Lab., Albuquerque, NM, United States
Electron microprobe and scanning electron microscopy. The platinum-group minerals found in the chromitites are laurite, porous Ru-rich alloys, Os-Ir- and Pt-rich alloys with highly variable compositions, an Ir-Cu-rich sulfide, a Pt arsenide, and three relatively rare platinum-group sulfides. The platinum-group minerals are 1 to 30 mu m in diameter and occur as inclusions in chromite grains; some of these inclusions also contain silicates and millerite. Base metal alloys (largely Ni-Fe) occur in cracks in the chromitites, along with magnetite, ferritchromite, chromian chlorite, and serpentine. The primary platinum-group mineral assemblage is interpreted to have formed before or during crystallization of the chromite grains and not as a result of exsolution from the chromite.--Modified journal abstract. http://econgeol.geoscienceworld.org/cgi/content/abstract/79/3/491
