Oregon State Legislature “Sine Die”
March 6, 2018
The Oregon Legislature adjourned “sine die” on Saturday, February 3 just before 5pm. That was 8 days before the constitutional mandated date of Feb. 11th. The session, as planned, moved along on a very quick track. Some of the major bills passed were in the areas of additional gun control related to domestic violence, prescription drug price transparency, fixes to the current budget, and a bill addressing the net neutrality issue.
Pam Leavitt, Policy Advisor for Oregon Stat Advocacy & Grassroots, shared that, “we had a very successful Credit Union Luncheon at the Capitol event. It is important we continue to unite and show the Oregon Legislature the power of our collective credit union voices. In addition, we saw a big victory in moving forward a legislative discussion on data breach and the need to better protect our members’ sensitive information. Passage of SB 1551 and the required consumer notification of a breach was an important first step to further discussions on this issue.”
