Oregon Legislators Opposing the Initiative Process



p>Who in the Oregon Legislature is Against the Initiative Process?

Some Oregon politicians are trying to gut our initiative process and make it harder for Oregonians on both sides of the political spectrum, left and right, to refer issues to the statewide ballot.

The following members of the Oregon House of Representatives voted in favor of HB 2082; legislation that would bog down the state’s initiative process and make it difficult for Oregonians that wanted to sign statewide petitions on any issue to do so.
