2019 Oregon Legislative Session What's Next?
While the summer is heating up so is the political activity in the state of Oregon. While the gavel to open the 2019 Legislative Session does not drop for a few more months, the work has already begun. Our August Membership Meeting will focus on the upcoming legislative session. We will have a panel featuring J.L. Wilson of the Oregon State Chamber of Commerce and OBI. We will take a look at what happened during the 2018 short session and what we can see happening in the 2019 regular session and how we can engage our elected officials.
