Oregon Budget and Session Update
The Oregon Legislature is wrapping up the current session- they are only allowed to continue until July 10, next Monday. Legislators have been working long days and weekends to complete their duties, and the Senate spent July 4th in session. The future of a handful of bills is still uncertain, but with no further budget measures passed we can assume many of the bills waiting in Ways and Means are likely done for the session. There are occasionally surprises, so we will keep you posted, but the budget is tying legislators hands in many ways.
