Oregon voters win against the Gestapo. https://www.tillamookheadlightheral...cle_cf3fe788-a2c2-5e84-b39a-0711a2c6fe0b.html Calling the kettle black. The controversial House Bill 2020, which places a cap on greenhouse gas emissions, has been deemed dead by Oregon Gov. Kate Brown. Senate President and top Democrat in the chamber Peter Courtney announced Tuesday,June 25, that his caucus did not have the votes needed to pass House Bill 2020. Senate Republicans walked out last week denying the Democrats the 20-member quorum necessary to conduct business. Gov. Brown released a statement just after the announcement was made. “Senate Republicans have blocked a bill that provides a better future for our state and for our children, and the tactics they employed to do so are not just unacceptable, but dangerous,” Brown said. “The Republicans are driving us away from the values that Oregonians hold dear, and are moving us dangerously close to the self-serving stalemate in Washington, DC." The total arrogance or Oregon's Demoocrat legislators has really pissed me off.............. and a lot of Oregon voters. The Republican walkout saved our butts from this California style of governing........... Meaning that they, the governing body, knows what is best for us.. They don't even need to ask. Today a caravan of semi and logging trucks from 12 to 15 miles long drove to the capital building to meet with protesters against Oregon's "emergency" carbon tax. Oregonians did not ask for this carbon tax bill. The legislators all by themselves deemed this 2020 carbon tax an 'emergency' in an effort to rail road the bill without asking us voters what we thought of it. We spoke, ..........they really don't care. They are PO'd big time. I may go to church on Sunday.
