(Salem, OR) -- A bill in the Oregon legislature would create a guaranteed income pilot program. To take part in the program, residents would have to qualify for housing assistance, but not get it, or make less than 60-percent of the median income. Portland State University's Homelessness Research and Action Collaborative would study recipients of the money. Participants would get a thousand dollars a month for two years. The pilot would cost 25-million dollars. The bill remains in committee.
