The State Constitution has no provision allowing the Legislature to meet outside Salem, and with fewer members should catastrophe hit. A proposal passed by the Oregon House would ask voters to change that, allowing lawmakers to meet where they can. Representative Jean Cowan: “It would allow the assembly to operate with a quorum of 2/3’s of those members able to attend.” And members could participate by video or ham radio, depending on the circumstances. Representative Tim Freeman says the constitutional change is unnecessary. The proposal heads to the Senate.
