(Salem, OR)  --  The 2019 Oregon Legislative Session is in the books.  The state Senate adjourned yesterday after voting on a number of bills.  Senate Republicans went back to work at the State Capitol over the weekend after receiving assurances that a climate change bill is dead.  The bill is a carbon capping plan that the Republicans oppose.  Senate leaders say they lack the 16 Democratic votes they need to pass the bill.  Republicans in that chamber walked away from their jobs for a week to prevent any action because of a lack of a quorum.  Three Senate Republicans were still missing for Saturday's vote, but enough returned for the 20-person quorum to allow business to return to normal.  The climate change bill was referred to the Senate Committee on Rules by a 17-to-10 vote.  Eight Democrats and all Republicans present voted for that.
