Oregon Legislative Organizational Days start tomorrow


by NW Spotlight

The Oregon State Legislature web site is now showing that “Legislative Organizational Days will begin Monday, January 12, 2015, and run through Wednesday January 14, 2015. During Organizational Days, members-elect are sworn in as legislators, bills are introduced, and committee membership is announced. The 78th Legislative Assembly will convene on Monday, February 2, 2015 for the regular session.”

Democrats have further tightened their control for this session with gains in the November 2014 election. As well as a Democratic governor, Democrats have returned to super-majority status in the Oregon Senate. They hold 18 seats to Republicans’ 12 seats. In the Oregon House, Democrats have moved to within one seat of super-majority status. Democrats hold 35 seats to Republicans’ 25 seats.

The Statesman Journal has a schedule for this week’s organizing sessions at the bottom of an op-ed.

    Hold back enough political energies to assist any Referendums and petition drives that might be mounted to overturn the power and money grabs undoubtedly that will spring from this upcoming legislature. It is going to get ugly for fiscal conservatives and also second amendment types.

    God show mercy on our soles for the Demons are almost in absolute control. Though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death…(Psalm 23). Then there is Chopin’s Funeral March.

    Hey, national GOP, we need you to show us some real love next election cycle.

      What state is friendly to second amendment rights?

    “God show mercy on our soles” – The soles of our shoes are going to leave us devastated!

    Wait for it – “Hey, lets tack on some more gas taxes to pay for our crumbling infrastructure and provide more jobs”

    Like suckers at a three card monty game you can bet Oregon voters will fall for it. A couple of dozen artists will get sweet commissions for bike path artwork. Maybe a few more trolly cars will be scammed. Roads will continue their plunge to third world status as always.

      Either that or they’ll “have” to cut education and your kids will end up stupid. Or maybe they’ll “have” to cut police and fire and your house will get torched by terrorists.
