Oregon Senate Passes "Kaylee's Law" Unanimously

May 2, 2019

It is a rare bill that passes either house of the Oregon legislature without a single no vote.  Senate bill 576 is such a bill. 

"Kaylee's Law," as it is known, is a memorial to Kaylee Sawyer, a Central Oregon Community College student murdered by a campus security officer.  SB 576 would require non-police officers to be clearly identified as such. 

It passed the house 29 to 0, with Senator Floyd Prozanski of Eugene acting as co-sponsor. 

Sen. Prozanski visits the Exchange with some of the finer points of the bill, which is now in the state House.
