A bill that would prevent picketing and other disruptive activities near a funeral service is cleared by the Oregon House. The measure would allow people to "reserve" space on public property at least 400 feet away from funeral or memorial services; and at least 1000 feet away under certain circumstances. Supporters of the bill say it would protect families of fallen veterans from a group that pickets military funerals and would provide a zone of privacy for all funerals. Local Representative Jason Conger of bend says he voted for the bill because he believes it respects the mourning family and free speech rights. The Legislation now goes to the Senate.
