Summer Recess Conversation: Suzanne Bonamici

Pete Springer/OPB

Our series of Summer Recess Conversations continues with a sit-down with Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici, who represents Oregon’s 1st district.

Bonamici was elected to Congress in a special election in January, 2012. Since then, she’s voted against efforts to change Obamacare and supported increases and changes to Medicaid reimbursements. She’s joined with other members of the delegation to oppose commodity speculation that could hurt craft breweries and successfully proposed an amendment to keep 34 C-23 Sherpa aircraft for the Army National Guard in Oregon. She’s supported an emphasis on science and art education, and she recently voted to pass a bipartisan plan to alleviate student loan interest rates

We’ll talk with Suzanne Bonamici about the last congressional session and what she expects when Congress reconvenes next month.
