Welcome to our 2019 New Members
2019 Legislative Update
The 2019 Legislative Session adjourned on Sunday, June 30th on what was constitutionally the last possible day for them to be convened. While each session takes on a life of its own, and is different year to year, 2019 may be recorded among the most contentious in Oregon’s history. While the session this year was a wild one, we feel OMBA had another successful year. We started out with several pieces of legislation that we thought may negatively impact the industry, and in the end were able to amend or defeat these bills. If anyone didn’t receive our final legislative report, please let us know. Despite the summer lull directly after session there has still been much to do. There have been workgroups, meetings, and the like. The legislature recently convened for legislative days the third week of September to have meetings as well as conduct committee hearings. Prior to the short session next February, they will meet twice more on November 18th-20th, and again on January 13th-15th. Here are a couple of the more pertinent issues we have been active in on your behalf:OMBA SEPTEMBER REPORT
