Senator Knopp Stands in Solidarity with Senate Republicans & Oregon Voters

REAL PERS REFORM NOW signs on the desks of Oregon Senate Republican members.

Senator Knopp gave the following statement on his absence from today’s Senate Floor session:

“While partaking in negotiations to end this stalemate, I have been in the Capitol building today continuing my normal schedule of hearings, constituent meetings and working on “Kaylee’s Law”, which I have made a commitment to the Sawyer family to see through to the end” said Knopp.

“However, I will not be present at today’s floor session in solidarity with my caucus members and the voters who rejected a similar tax just two years ago. Oregon needs real PERS reform now, and we will continue to use whatever tools are available to us to achieve the best outcome for Oregon students, taxpayers, small business owners, educators and families.”
