Shenanigans at the Oregon Senate – HB 4045 Moves On
Here we go again.
House Bill 4045, the CHL privacy bill has now been officially moved from Senate President Peter Courtney’s desk to the Rules Committee. Rep. Kim Thatcher had a good agreement with Sen. Floyd Prozanski, the chair of the Judiciary Committee, enough agreement to get some minor amendments put in that she could live with and that he would promise to move it to the floor for a vote. Instead, for whatever reason, Sen. Courtney moved it to Rules….. my suspicion is he knew it would go to a Senate floor vote and is trying to kill it.
So, now after putting a ton of pressure on Prozanski and Courtney, and it worked by the way, we need to contact these members of the Rules Committee and apply MORE pressure.
Rep. Thatcher is satisfied with the amendments and the CHL holder’s information will be private! It’s a good bill.
Please contact these members:
Senator Diane Rosenbaum (D) – Chair: [email protected] 503-986-1700
Senator Ted Ferrioli (R) – Chair: [email protected] 503-986-1950
Senator Jason Atkinson (R): [email protected] 503-986-1702
Senator Lee Beyer (D): [email protected] 503-986-1706
Senator Ginny Burdick (D): [email protected] 503-986-1718
You want them to pass the bill with the amendments as is to the Senate floor for a vote as soon as possible. Keep in mind that Burdick and Rosenbaum are EXTREME anti-gun, stress to her that this is all about privacy.
We have a GOOD friend and advocate in Sen. Ferrioli.
Please work hard on this tomorrow friends! We need this done this year! Rep. Kim Thatcher has broke her back on this and more! Thank you!
