A Message from Representative Bill Post

 

2019 Sine Die!

I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to Summer 2019 and I'm grateful the Legislative Session has adjourned!  

I’m not going to lie, having a super majority of either party is not a good thing for Oregonians. Despite the partisan tendencies of this session, I am thankful my office was able to get some common-sense legislation passed…

  • HB 3213 – Establishes safety corridors around the state, which I hope will address “death road” (as described by the Newberg Graphic) in North Marion County.
  • SB 320 – If approved by Congress, this measure will establish permanent Daylight Saving Time. This was a bi-partisan effort with Rep. John Lively (D-Springfield) and Sen. Kim Thatcher (R-Keizer).
  • HB 2236 – Allows farm tractors to operate on state highways that have speed limits of 35mph or more…this is important to HD 25 because so much of it is agricultural.
  • HB 2336 – Relating to affordable housing…as you know we have an affordable housing issue in Oregon and this bill will help.
  • HB 2428 – Strengths our public indecency laws.
  • HB 2515 – Ensures humane treatment in women’s correctional facilities.
  • HB 2579 – Strengthens the Farm to School Program so that our farms can deliver their foods to our kids in schools.
  • HCR 13 – Honors Keizer's own Private First Class Ryan J. Hill with a Highway Memorial Sign.
  • SB 390 – Allows olive oil farmers to sell their product at their farms, including one farm in our district.

Unfortunately, as I previously mentioned, an imbalance of power can cause good bipartisan policy to fall by the way side. Here are some of the bills I introduced that I was disheartened to see fail move through the process…

  • HB 2303 – Would have allowed for behind the counter purchase of common cold medicine with a government issued photo ID, just like 37 other states in America.
  • HB 2302 – Would have provided funds to the Government Assistance Program.
  • HB 3276 – Would have provided a tax credit for veterans to use to pay back student loans.
  • HB 3446 – Would have eliminated the corporate sales tax on basic necessities.
  • HJR 14 – Would have dealt with the dreaded emergency clause on legislation.
  • SB 1040 – For my Keizer constituents, you know about the shootings down by the river, this would have addressed that situation.
  • HB 2295 – Would have addressed Measure 11 concerns without going around the voter’s will.

This session was one of, if not the, most unusual legislative sessions in Oregon’s history. This session ended with Senate Republicans staging a nine day walkout, at least two of the largest rallies I’ve ever seen, and working on the very last day that the constitution allows for.

In conclusion, I look forward to the day that Oregon has a more balanced legislature to ensure that every voice is heard.

That's where YOU come in! Though it is not an election year this year, I need YOUR help to start the work that will be required in 2020 to

Stop forced vaccinations
Stop bad gun bills
Stop more taxes
Stop cap and trade

and who-knows-what-other crazy stuff the majority party will come up with.
