The Oregon Special Legislature session has officially wrapped up– the special session taking five days longer than initially billed, a delay that is now costing you.
Taxpayers– like it or not dished out an extra $55,000 in per diem costs alone. Oregon Live Reporting:
Late last night– by overwhelming majorities, the Senate endorsed house bill 41-64, which would create a health insurance exchange– a possible model for a federal exchange.
House bill 41-65 was also passed, which re-organizes and expands the state’s early childhood programs.
Another talker– the Senate has added protections against foreclosures.
These bills now sits before the Governor.
