Short Description: 
The Bike Show Looks at how cycling is developing across the nation.

Watch out, Portland! (Or more accurately, watch this). Bike coordinators and advocates from across North America discuss how their cities are taking the lead on cycling-- including bike sharing programs, off road trail developments and much more. Portland may be a forerunner in cycling, but these cities are inspiring and quickly on the way to becoming bike meccas themselves. Guest Randy Neufield, National advocate with the SRAM Cycling Fund, will give our listeners a broad perspective on where and how cycling is affecting transportation nationwide.

Voices from the Edge 03-17-11 A new look at Oregon's Measure 11 and its impacts

program date: 
Thu, 03/17/2011

Kevin Mannix promised voters in 1994 that his Ballot Measure 11 establishing minimum mandatory sentences would create certainty in Oregon's criminal justice system. While the measure tripled the state's prison population over 20 years, a new report by the state Criminal Justice Commission finds that Measure 11 not only failed to deliver certainty, it has cost the state billions of dollars while it shifting sentencing power from the hands of judges to those of district attorneys - a shift many see as dangerous.
