From Oregon State Senator Daniel Bonham:
Measure 113 was last year’s ambiguously-worded statewide initiative concerning quorum and “unexcused” absences. It is unconstitutional. Words matter, and it’s not entirely clear when Measure 113 would kick in. Also, it violates our First Amendment rights and of those who would elect us.
The political ploy was evident when the Senate President called for session on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, until my colleagues and I hit 10 days of unexcused absences. Now he is adjourning the Thursday Floor sessions until Monday. This is political theater.
