Obama hears Republican offers, businesses' worries about shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is getting an earful on the budget standoff from Republican leaders and from business owners.

Obama and House Speaker John Boehner have been stepping up efforts to prevent the U.S. Treasury from default and end a partial government shutdown. The country is increasingly feeling the impact, from new aircraft grounded to a crab harvest jeopardized in the Bering Sea.

Obama met at the White House with small business owners about the impacts they were feeling from the budget battles. Businessman Det Ansinn says Obama hoped to be able to bring them toward a conclusion.

He told the president how the shutdown is threatening to delay some of his projects and he fears what a possible impending government default could do to the economy.

Republicans in the House and Senate separately made proposals to the White House for ending an impasse that polls say has inflicted damage on their party politically. Each offered to reopen the government and raise the $16.7 trillion debt limit — but only as part of broader approach.

That approach envisions deficit savings, changes to the health care law known as "Obamacare" and an easing of across-the-board spending cuts that the White House and Congress both dislike.

Governtment Shutdown Poll

Should your town impose a 1-year moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries?
ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — One of Oregon's more liberal cities is considering a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries.

The Ashland Daily Tidings newspaper reports that the Oregon Health Authority Medical Marijuana Dispensary Program has already received six dispensary applications for Ashland.

But neighborhood opposition has been increasing and the council will discuss a moratorium on April 1.

People hoping to launch dispensaries in Oregon began submitting applications to the state on March 3 as part of a new medical marijuana regulatory system.

A proposed dispensary called Top Shelf Meds abuts an Ashland neighborhood.

Carol Kim says the dispensary is separated from her home by a hedge. She says it's ironic that state rules bar dispensaries near schools, but her daughters will come home from school and have to live near a dispensary.

My town should definitely impose the moratorium for one year -- no more, no less.
My town should NOT impose the moratorium for any length of time. My town should follow current state laws on medical marijuana dispensaries.
I am unsure whether I am in favor of medical marijuana dispensaries in my town, regardless of current state laws.
