Oregon Legislature Ends Session On Final day

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Legislature ended the 2023 session on the final day it was allowed to meet. The session included a historic walkout by Senate Republicans over a health care bill covering abortion and gender rights along with a gun control bill that was tabled. One bill that died on Sunday was a key housing bill supported by Governor Tina Kotek to increase affordable housing. It failed to pass because of an amendment that would allow local governments outside of the Portland area to expand urban growth boundaries. Lawmakers approved a referendum asking voters whether ranked choice voting should be approved for statewide elections.
