The League of Oregon Cities Committee or “LOC” met with Governor Kitzhaber about a new resolution; seeking his support. Redmond Mayor George Endicott is on the board of that committee and  was at the meeting with the Governor Friday. The priority was HJR 26: "It's called House Joint Resolution 26 which is a resolution that will be an amendment it will goes to the voters to approve but what it does is extends the amount of time that operating levy’s can exist. This would extend them from five to ten years, but because of Measures 5 and 50, it's a Constitutional Amendment. But the Governor did say he would support it so that's what we were after and that's what we got; so it was a good meeting." Now that the Executive Committee got the approval, it must be approved by the Legislature and signed by the Governor in order to be referred to the voters as a potential Constitutional Amendment.  If voters approve the Constitutional Amendment, it only gives communities the authority to ask local voters for approval of local operating levies.
