    This bill is so badly needed. The legislature now puts “emergency clauses” in every bill they submit so WE THE PEOPLE can’t vote it out once it becomes law. This is their way to have complete control over we the people. With this type of control over us they treat us more and more like their slaves and piggy banks.

    Please send a letter of support for this bill to the committee who will decide if it gets to be voted on or not, send it to them at srules.exhibits@oregonlegislature.gov
    Thank you.
