Legislative Reception sees its biggest turn out thus far
Several WEA members attended this year's Legislative Reception, along with State Treasurer Tobias Read, Senator Mark Hass, and representatives Margaret Doherty, Ken Helm, Sheri Malstrom, Susan McLain, Mark Meek, Julie Parrish, Andrea Salinas, Janeen Sollman, and Richard Vial.
The legislators and WEA members talked about the issues the state is currently facing.
Representative Vial said he actually dropped all of the bills he was looking at sponsoring because he didn't want to contribute to the short session chaos.
When it comes to the budget, Senator Hass said he and other leaders are looking at the language of the Federal Tax Act and trying to figure out what the impacts are for Oregon.
