Identity Theft Bill Signed Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski has signed into law a pair of legislative bills originally offered by the Oregon Bankers Association, representing the interests of all commercial banks, savings and loans, thrift institutions and trust companies. The first bill elevates from a Class A misdemeanor to a Class C Felony the possession of a personal identification device (credit card, debit card and/or state or federal identification cards and driver's license) with the intent to use such forms of identity to commit a crime The second bill makes the unlawful production of ID cards, licenses and permits also a Class C Felony. Already signed into law this legislative session were two additional OBA identity theft bills, one including provisions that allow merchants the ability to accept additional forms of identification during debit or credit card transactions and a second expanding the crime of knowingly initiating a fraudulent transaction using credit, debit or stored value cards or any other card used to obtain something of value from a merchant (known in the industry as factoring). This last bill includes the use of scanning devices to access, read, scan, obtain, memorize or store card information without the cardholder's knowledge or with the intent to defraud. "Identity theft is a devastating crime that can destroy a victim's finances and reputation and take years to recover from," said Majority Leader Tim Knopp (R-Bend). "It is only appropriate that we increase the punishment for this crime as I recognize that possessing fictitious identifica- tion or equipment to make them, for the express purpose of committing fraud, is a serious crime" Oregon has ranked as high as tenth in the nation for identity theft crimes, per capita, in recent reports. eives Funds for New Science U.S. Congressman Greg Walden (R-OR) visited the Eastern Oregon University Campus at La Grande re- cently to announce a $2 mil- lion federal investment in the EOU Science Center that has been awarded by the Eco- nomic Development Admin- istration, a sub-agency of the Department of Agriculture. The EDA assists communi- ties and regions across the nation in promoting a favor- able business environment and helping to create higher skill and higher wage jobs. "This investment repre- sents a tremendous opportu- nity not only for EOU to en- hance its infrastructure, but also for the entire region to benefit from the job creation that will be made possible by the Science Center," Walden said. The $2 million grant will help build and equip a 10,000 square-foot research labora- tory to be used for biotech sciences. The new lab will be an arm of Oregon Health and Sciences University. The EDA estimates that over the next five years, the Science Center project will generate 500 or more local jobs, including faculty mem- bers, nurses, research and administrative positions, and others. Total cost of the cen- ter is estimated to be $33 million. Over the next 10 years, the Commerce Department has projected the creation of 10 "spin-off" companies with 30 - 40 employees each as a result of innovations devel- oped at the Science Center. In addition to producing high-paying jobs in the high- tech sector, the EDA grant will also help alleviate the shortage of qualified nurses in eastern Oregon by ex- panding the EOU nursing program. 2 Ubr SALE DAYS: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST I I'H TO SUNDAY, AUGUST 17TH WHILE SUPPLIES LAST A ort l 16 oz W.E 48 oz W.F.
