Oregon Legislature begins 2014 session

Posted By Beth Farmer, Wednesday, February 5, 2014

The 2014 session of the Oregon Legislature began Monday and is scheduled to last 35 days. The main topics are expected to be the implementation of Cover Oregon, a possible attempt to approve the Columbia River Crossing as an Oregon-only project, and a bill expanding background checks on gun sales.

A bill on the topic of pollinators and pesticides is being introduced by Rep. Jeff Reardon (D-Happy Valley). The OAN is engaged in discussions with Rep. Reardon and conservation groups to create a compromise that protects pollinators as well as safe chemical use by agriculture.

The 2013 session was one of the most successful on record for the Oregon nursery industry. As always, the OAN Government Relations Team is monitoring activity in Salem, and working with legislators on both sides of the aisle, to promote and defend the interests of nurseries.
