The Oregon Progressive Party is taking stands at the Oregon Legislature.
As bills are scheduled for committee hearing, we take our positions. The Oregon Legislature's committees will not accept the submittal of testimony, until a bill is scheduled for committee hearing. That requires any interested person to keep track of the schedules for dozens of committees. This is not a good way to encourage public participation.
You can learn about these bills at the website of the Legislature. Go to https://olis.leg.state.or.us/liz/2015R1 and click on Bills in the upper right area. You can add your comments about these bills below. You can click on OPP's Legislative Group to join it.
You can read our testimonies at Progressive Party Testimonies.
The table below shows bills we supported or opposed. Bold means that the Legislature passed the bill, and the Governor signed it.
On the whole, the 2015 Legislature did nothing of signficance that we supported. The 15 enacted bills we supported were not very consequential.
