With New Year Approaching, Democrats Want Oregonians to Forget Much-Needed Reforms

From the Oregon House Republicans:

While a number of bills will become law on January 1, 2008, Democrats would like Oregonians to forget the much-needed reforms they killed in 2007, which include:

HB 2550 6/20/07-House Democrats voted to kill the Republican plan to hire a legislative auditor to review the performance of state agencies and increase fiscal responsibility in state government.

HB 2613 6/19/07-House Democrats voted to kill bipartisan Chalkboard Project legislation to require independent state audits of school district finances.

HB 3427 6/19/07-House Democrats voted to kill legislation requiring that 65 cents of every education dollar be spent on classroom instruction.

HB 3535 5/8/07-House Democrats voted to kill the Republican plan to dedicate General Fund resources to the Oregon State Police, at funding levels to provide 24/7 Trooper coverage.

HB 3429 5/23/07-House Democrats voted to kill legislation to crack down on career criminals who repeatedly victimize Oregonians through property crime, ID theft and auto theft.

SB 465 6/25/07-House Democrats voted to kill legislation to protect consumers and businesses from employees under the influence of medical marijuana.

HB 2861 5/21/07-House Democrats voted to kill legislation to keep sex offenders out of communities without 24/7 police coverage.

“House Republicans will continue to fight for these much-needed reforms,” said House Republican Leader Bruce Hanna (R-Roseburg). “Oregonians shouldn’t have to wait two more years for education reform, 24/7 State Police coverage and other important public safety solutions.”

    These dems must be nuts. I am not seeing much wrong with any of these bills.
    What a pathetic bunch of legislative losers.
    On the other hand, the repubs are not much better. They should simply stop all government until these are passed. They are weak and ineffective.
    The whole thing is pathetic.
    Why do they even run for these jobs if they can’t do them? Both parties – they simply seem out of their league.
