State Representative Jason Conger of Bend is skeptical about a special session resulting in a "grand bargain" on pers reform.

 

The governor announced last week that he plans to make a decision within a few days on whether or not to call a special session. 

 

He was speaking last Thursday to teachers and school leaders from Hermiston and Pendleton about the possibility of PERS reform. He say he would make his decision on a special session within 10 days. 

 

"I have a certain amount of doubt- given that we just spent 6 months relentlessly trying to come up with a pers reform package trying to make it through the legislature...and it didn't happen."

 

The main topic would be a deal that combines PERS reform and some form of a tax increase.

 

The special session may also include a new plan for the Columbia River Crossing.  The project was considered dead after the Washington legislature failed to approve its part of the funding for the bridge. The new plan could involve just Oregon and the Federal Government.
