HOUSE REPUBLICANS CALL FOR FIXING PERS THIS SESSION
SALEM, OR – Oregon House Republican Leader Mike McLane (R – Powell Butte) released the following statement today regarding initial public hearings on the Democrat proposal on PERS, SB 822:
“There is a broad group of Oregonians supporting comprehensive PERS reform, from our school boards to local governments, from education activists to newspaper editorial boards. The Oregon Business Plan, which Gov. Kitzhaber has pointed to as his roadmap this session, makes fixing PERS a top priority.
This Democrat proposal is not comprehensive reform. We need to fix PERS this session and not put it off any longer. Our schools and children deserve it. ”
