Representative Boshart Davis, Co-Chief Sponsor of Self-Serve Gas Bill, Praises Legislation Being Signed Into Law
By Oregon State Representative Shelly Boshart Davis
SALEM, OR – Today, Governor Kotek signed House Bill 2426 A into law, allowing Oregonians to choose between self-service and service from an attendant at gas stations statewide.
Polling has consistently shown that over two-thirds of Oregonians support choice at the pump. In 2020, 2021, and 2022, the Oregon State Fire Marshall temporarily lifted the self-service ban statewide during public health emergencies.
Representative Shelly Boshart Davis (R-Albany) is a Co-Chief Sponsor of this legislation and has led the fight to create this change in Oregon law for the past few years.
“I am thrilled to see this legislation signed into law. Not only do Oregonians want the freedom to choose whether they can pump their own gas, but this also provides critical relief to small businesses struggling with the ongoing labor shortage,” said Representative Boshart Davis. “This legislation provides a common-sense solution by protecting gas attendants’ jobs and Oregonians’ access to fuel. I want to thank House Majority Leader Fahey (D- West Eugene & Veneta), Senator Bonham (R- The Dalles), and Senator Sollman (D-Hillsboro) for their bi-partisan commitment to this effort.”
