State Representative Mike McLane of Powell Butte says all PERS reform bills with the exception of one - are being snuffed out by the speaker of the house. Republican McLane - who is the house minority leader - says Tina Kotek visited the Republican caucus earlier this week to explain how she would handle pers bills. 

 

"She indicated that she had reviewed all the bills and deemed Senate Bill 822 as the best and the most balanced and didn't see the need to review other bills-  it's certainly isn't what we want but it's what the voters gave us and it's our job to point out the differences - and ask moderate Democrats to join us- but certainly ask Oregonians to stand up and demand reasonableness and the right policy."

 

McLane says the Democrat-backed plan keeps a cost of living increase in place for former ducks coach Mike Belotti- who gets 42 thousand a month from his PERS account.  McLane was a guest Tuesday on the Lars Larson show - which airs from noon to 3 on 11-10 KBND.
