Fake Emergency Legislation
Deadline Alert: Help Stop Fake Emergency Legislation
… Oregon Catalyst – Taxpayers Association of Oregon – Thursday June 9, 2016 …
During the last legislative session in Oregon 70% of the bills passed with an emergency clause with no valid reason.
The good news is that the petition to protect your Right to Vote on bad laws by ending Emergency Clause abuse has gathered over 115,000 signatures. The bad news is that the campaign is 4,300 signatures short of the June goal.
The deadline is June 29th to get it in the mail (in time for us to process them). The fact that this year alone, Governor Kate Brown passed nearly 70% of all bills with an emergency clause even though there is no emergency to justify most of these bills and the fake emergency had the effect of blocking our ability to repeal their bad law. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to end this abuse by politicians who are engaged in rampant abuse of our rights as voters.
Please help us gather 4,300 signatures in the next 20 days.
