OR Legislature Starts Short Session Today

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Legislature starts its short session today. It's normally intended for budget adjustments, but democratic leaders have a larger agenda that includes affordable housing, criminal justice reform, and a bill that would grant farmworkers overtime. That bill failed to pass in the last session. Democrats are in the majority, but Republicans can deny a quorum if they walk out. Republicans say the Democrat's agenda for the short session goes too far.
