This bill will eliminate the even-numbered year, short 35 day legislative session by the will of the people to amend the Oregon Constitution.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
Oregonians were duped when the short session was proposed for minor budgetary and spending modifications. The short time frame does not allow for bills to be properly vetted or time for Oregonians to voice an opinion.
Going to biennial regular sessions will have cost savings.
The short session was intended (and when proposed to voters) as being for minor budgetary and spending modifications. As demonstrated with the 2020 short session, very complected and impact bills are being submitted
