Voters, please, do not be misled by thinking the Oregon Republican senators were being arrogant. Thank goodness they had the courage to stand against this most extreme and impracticable political pressure. It is the only option they had to truly represent all the Oregon businesses which provide most of the jobs for Oregon workers, as well as the food, wood products, leather and everyday items we all use.

Please ask your Democrat Legislators and the Governor to recognize the devastation HB2020 cannot help but create.
