Legislative Check-In

Pete Springer/OPB

The Oregon Legislature had a self-imposed goal to wrap up its first constitionally mandated short session by February 29, but it looks like that’s not going to happen. (Technically, lawmakers have until March 6 to finish up.) The budget plan released last week has yet to be officially passed and legislators appear to be deadlocked over the governor’s school policy bills, changes to the way foreclosures work, and a few other things.

Oregonian capitol reporter Michelle Cole will join us once again to give us an update on what’s going on in Salem as the legislature hurtles towards the finish line.

What bills have you been following in the short legislative session?
