Teece, Jim-Project A Software Solutions -- you'll be jealous that I got a half hour with Teague today. What a great OSU spokesperson she is! Let's find $100 million for the state's university system so that we can encourage more fabulous young people like Teague.
I'm delighted that SB 3 - the suction dredge mining ban - passed the Senate today! Now the bill will come over to the House and we can honor the incredible legacy of Senator Alan Bates (pictured) by making this bill law.
Alan's determination and leadership will protect critical spawning areas and stream habitat for Oregon's future generations.
Thanks so much to the 85 to 90 community members who joined me this morning for a town hall meeting at Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship! Special thanks to David Lane and Mountain Meadows Democrats Plus for organizing the event, and to members of Rogue Climate, Unite Oregon Rogue Valley Chapter, Ashland Culture of Peace Commission and others who participated in the conversation.
All yolks aside, this common sense bill is truly everything it's cracked up to be. HB3116, which allows farm direct egg sales to avoid unnecessary regulation, passed the House unanimously yesterday and has flown over to the Senate.
