(Salem, OR)  --  Republican Senator Brian Boquist must give at least 12 hours notice if he plans to visit the Capitol building in Salem.  That was the unanimous decision from a special committee of the Oregon state Senate yesterday following alleged threats made by Boquist.  The decision means Boquist will have to submit his intent to visit the Capitol in writing and that state troopers beef up their presence while he is in the building.  Last month, Boquist warned if state police were sent to force him to return during a GOP walkout they should send "bachelors and come heavily armed."  He also allegedly told Senate President Peter Courtney that "hell is coming to visit you personally" if he sent officers after him.
