Correction:Sen. Alan DeBoer is speaking at our SOROA (Medford-Ashland-Grants Pass) March 20th education (dinner) meeting. He is a Landlord himself and was aligned with landlords to vote (
for) against last year’s HB 2004 if it came to the Senate floor. However, the bill died in committee as the count by the bill’s promoters was not sufficient to pass the bill on the full Senate floor. Mark Nichols heard on the radio that Sen. DeBoer is also promoting having a sales tax. Ask him about why he thinks we need a sales tax. He is making his mind up if he is going to run again when his term ends. He advocates for landlord’s positions. We need his vote in the Oregon Senate for landlord issues. We have been asked to encourage him to run again.
Sen. DeBoer has some new committee assignments
: the Senate Health Care Committee, as well as the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Human Services. This is in addition to his membership of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on General Government, the full Ways and Means Committee and the Joint Information Management and Technology Committee. Senate Health Care Committee, as well as the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Human Services.
