The Oregon Supreme Court last week declined to order a rewrite of the Oregon Driver's Card ballot title that's going before voters in November. Backers of the bill had asked the court to require more balanced ballot language.
"We're very disappointed the court didn't send this flawed ballot title back to the attorney general," OAN Executive Director Jeff Stone said. "Nonetheless, we will fight hard to defend this measure, so that all Oregonians can be safe on the roads. People need to be able to get to work, go to church, do their shopping, and take their kids to school. We hope others will join us in voting yes."
The 2013 bill created a four-year driver's card for drivers of legal age who can prove residency and driving ability. A group seeking to reduce immigration gathered signatures to delay the bill and force a public vote.
The Oregon Nurseries' Political Action Committee (ONPAC) plans to vigorously support the measure, and will also back legislative candidates who understand and support nursery priorities, including the need for a driver's card. Members are urged to back these efforts by supporting ONPAC.
