Republicans are in the minority in the Oregon House, and Thursday party members met to elect their leadership.

 

Mike McLane of Powell Butte was chosen to be the caucus' new leader, with Julie Parrish of West Linn as the new Deputy and Vicki Berger from Salem the new Whip.

 

Representative John Huffman of District 59 says they are back to the way the Oregon House  was  in 2009.

“We're going to be more in the situation where the House Democrats will have the ability to pass any piece of legislation they want.  It's going  to be really important to be invited to the table and let left out of the process and not have a voice.”

 

The upcoming Oregon House will have 34 Democrats and 26 Republicans.
