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. Two-thirds of senators are required to be present fo ...

PORTLAND, Oregon -- The Oregon Health Authority will begin weekly updates on persons under monitoring and persons under investigation for novel coronavirus, COVID-19, as state epidemiologists, local public health officials and federal partners continue their investigation of the disease that has sickened tens of thousands of people worldwide.

Still no cases in Oregon and risk remains low as state’s investigation continues

Starting today, and continuing every Tuesday beginning March 3, OHA will post data on persons under monitoring (PUMs) and persons under investigation (PUI) on its website, http://healthoregon.org/coronavirus. PUMs are individuals who do not have COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing, but who may have been exposed through a close contact with a confirmed case or travel to mainland China. PUIs are individuals with COVID-19 symptoms -- but not necessarily the virus -- who have had one of these exposures.

"We recognize people are very worried about COVID-19, particularly given that we don’t know everything we wish we c ...

Gov. Kate Brown unveiled a new website last week to let Oregonians know about the upcoming 2020 census in hopes of getting full participation so the state is represented accurately. It includes background information, why participation matters and a timeline of events. Getting an accurate census count is critical in making sure states receive a fair amount of federal funding, as it's distributed on a per-capita basis and the feds rely on census data to confirm population size. In addition to securing federal funding, the website notes that experts predict Oregon could gain a 6th congressional seat if the census count is complete this year, which would "amplify Oregon's voice in Washington D.C." "Our democracy's strength relies on representation, and the 2020 Census is integral to making sure that Oregonians receive their fair share of federal resources and congressional representation over the next decade," Gov. Kate Brown said in a statement. "From more dollars for our schools and hospitals to ensuring our roads are safe and well kept, the census has a significant impact in the everyday lives of all Oregonians—and I'm committed to working with all partners across Orego ...
