building a strong network of real estate finance professionals, the
Oregon Mortgage Bankers Association has grown into an organization which
is the resource point for the real estate lending industry in Oregon.

2020 Legislative Update
Markee & Associates, Inc
The 2020 short session essentially adjourned without a quorum on the afternoon of March 5th with both the Speaker and Senate President stating they will not hold significant floor session again before the deadline. This action followed what was a nearly two-week walkout from both Republican caucuses in protest over Cap and Trade legislation. It wrapped up what has been a series of legislative sessions where the two parties tempers flared to a point where they boiled over into division and hyper-partisanship all centered around what role the State of Oregon should have in dealing with climate change. Since the long session last year, the line in the sand had been drawn by the minority party that if a Cap and Trade bill was ever brought forth for consideration without a referral to the ballot they would consider a walkout and thus stall the legislative process. In many ways, the breakdown of the process this session was predictable. The uncertainty was around the timing and whether budget bills would be pushed through prior to bring forth Cap and Trade.
