Jeff Merkley on the Future of the Oregon Legislature

Just thought I would share a quote from Minority Leader Jeff Merkley who could soon be Speaker of the Oregon House.

Last night at the Benson Hotel Jeff said:
"This is an opportunity for us to present a wonderful agenda on healthcare, on prescription drugs, a full school year for children, biofuels, and a real conversation about civil rights and civil unions."

This is quite a welcomed change that we have become used to from the outgoing Speaker Minnis. Here's to the 2007 legislative session!
