Oregon’s Republican state senators agreed to return to the Capitol Friday, after a week on the run to stop Democrats from passing a landmark climate bill. Democrats said earlier this week that the climate bill, which would have established a cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions, didn’t have the votes necessary to pass. Speaking at a press conference in the Capitol Friday, Senate Republican leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. said his members would return to Salem in time for the 9 a.m. legislative session on Saturday. “Our mission of walking out of this building was to kill cap-and-trade,” he said. “I’m proud of this caucus.” Senators will have a sprint to finish their work this weekend, with the legislative session scheduled to end Sunday at midnight. There are more than 100 pending bills and resolutions that need Senate approval in that time, including state budget bills. Any bill not approved by Sunday night will be dead. Senate Majority Leader Ginny Burdick, a Democrat, said bills on paid family leave and a tobacco tax to fund public health were also priorities, in addition to the budget. She said the cap-and-trade bill was one vote short of the 16 it needed to p ...

Almost a year after Oregon state Rep. Janelle Bynum’s story of being questioned by police after a 911 call on her as she campaigned in her district went viral and sparked the hashtag #CampaigningWhileBlack, Oregon state senators have passed a bill that would allow the victims of frivolous, discriminatory 911 calls to sue the callers. On Monday, the Oregon state Senate passed House bill 3216, a measure introduced by the state’s three black Democratic legislators, including Bynum. The bill allows victims of these calls to sue a 911 caller for as much as $250 if the victim can prove that the 911 call was racially motivated and that the caller intended to discriminate or harm the reputation of the victim.
