SALEM, Ore. – The Consumer Price Index experienced its largest 12-month increase in 30 years, evidence of rising inflation.

Ahead of the upcoming 2022 Legislative Session, House Republican Leader Christine Drazan (R-Canby) warns against policies that will increase the cost of living in Oregon.

“Rising inflation will hurt Oregonians,” said Leader Drazan. “Our state budget is a runaway train, doubling in 10 years while raising the cost of living. With the shocking rise in inflation, I will oppose any bills that increase costs for Oregon families. Fiscal policies that dig into their pocketbooks to fill state coffers are going to push people out of their homes and out of our state. We should do everything we can to eliminate regulations that raise costs so families can keep their homes and jobs.”
