Friends and Neighbors:
The 2016 Legislative Session is now history. For 32 days we sought fair, meaningful, well-reasoned legislation necessary for our circumstances. We passed policies assisting rural industries, small businesses, veterans, and working families throughout the State of Oregon.
We took our responsibility seriously and did what we could to contribute to the larger effort. The following measures were my priorities during the 2016 Legislative Short Session:
1) HJR 202- a referral to the November ballot for a permanent set aside of a portion of Lottery Revenues for veterans outreach and services.
2) HB 4081 an extension of a tax extension for affordable housing providers; and
3) SB 1565 a new tool for rural economic development important for our emergent beer, spirits, and wine industry. All three of these priorities successfully passed the Oregon Legislature.
I encourage you to participate in the legislative process, as it is you I am representing. Please, feel free to contact my office to share your concerns, ideas, thoughts, or questions; your feedback is helpful in allowing me to understand what is important to our district. On my website, you will find information about our work here in Salem, as well as useful links to state and local government agencies.
Please do not hesitate to call, e-mail, or write to me; I will do my very best to ensure that our state government is serving you. My office prioritizes meetings with constituents, and I encourage you to visit me in Salem and to get involved. Thank you for the opportunity to work on your behalf in Salem and district 20.
Representative for House District 20
