SALEM, Oregon - Oregon Senate Republicans staged a walkout Monday morning to impede a Democratic bill to lower greenhouse gas emissions. The attempt was to prevent a quorum vote on the bill. The walkout was the same as Republican legislators made last year as they attempted to stop the passage of a similar bill and threatens to do the same this week of the state's legislative session. Democrat Governor Kate Brown blasted the actions of the state senators during a news conference, saying that if Senate Republicans "don’t like a bill, they need to show up and change it or show up and vote no." "This makes it very, very clear. The Senate Republicans who walked out are not against climate policy. They are against the democratic response," she said. "Oregonians should be outraged." Just one GOP state senator showed up to Monday morning's Senate floor session after the legislature's Ways and Means Committee advanced the bill, according to The Oregonian. Senate President Peter Courtney (D) was forced to adjourn the the chamber after a sergeant-at-arms searched the Capitol without finding any of the other 11 GOP senators.
