Oregon Legislators Consider Upcoming Session

Jan 25, 2018

Oregon legislators caught a break this week with the passage of Measure 101 (January 23). 

It ratified an earlier legislative decision on new taxes to fund the Oregon Health Plan, Oregon's form of Medicaid for people living on lower incomes.

If the vote had been No, legislators would have had to come up with roughly $300 Million in funding, or accept program cuts somewhere. 

The short legislative session starts in February; we welcome Sen. Alan DeBoer and Rep. Pam Marsh of Ashland to the studio to talk about the session.
