Honoring the Fallen
A House or Senator Concurrent Resolution (HCR or SCR) is a means to honor an individual or organization. HCR 12 passed on Feb. 13th with unanimous support from all parties. The resolution honors the Oregon State Police Fallen Trooper Memorial, which was dedicated on October 1st, 2016. For more information about the memorial, click here.
