Legislation is passed that will bring help to Oregon's homeless and at-risk veterans. Representatives Gene Whisnant of Sunriver and Jason Conger of Bend championed House Bill 4027, that provides immunity from civil liability to registered volunteers that provide services such as medical, dental and pharmacy to the homeless and at-risk citizens through charitable organizations. Today, the Central Oregon Veterans Outreach, Bend's Band of Brothers and the Partnership to End Poverty are honoring Conger and Whisnant at a breakfast. COVO spokesman Chuck Hemmingway says the legislation was a real breakthrough to help vets; and honoring the lawmakers is long overdue: "It's a long overdue recognition. Representative Whisnant took up the banner for us in the 2011 Legislation session, and because of some objections, that bill didn't get through. But he had the wherewithall, the stamina to reintroduce it again and Jason Conger, who's a part of that committee, and they shepherded it through the Senate side of the House. This wouldn't have happened if it weren't for two of them." The breakfast is at Jake's Diner beginning at 11 a-m.
