Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I've just finished up a very long but productive week at the Capitol.  I am pleased that Democrats and Republicans were able to come together to pass some very important legislation in the House.  We worked to extend eviction protections for businesses, put a cap on the price of insulin, and provide unemployment insurance relief for small businesses.  I am also pleased that two more of my bills, HB2954 and HB3254, passed the House with strong bi-partisan support.  HB3254 provides funds for the educational costs of students in qualified treatment programs, and HB2954 allows public charter schools to implement a weighted lottery that favors historically underserved students when the number of applicants for enrollment exceeds the capacity of the program, class, grade level, or building.  I look forward to working on these bills with my Senate colleagues.

2021 Session: Bill Features

I was very proud to vote for these important pieces of legislation that will have meaningful impacts on the lives of Oregonians.  They have all passed the House and are headed to the Senate:

HB2966 - Extending Eviction Protections for Businesses: This bill protects small businesses from evictions by extending the timeline for the repayment of back rent for non-residential spaces.  The bill aims to support small businesses most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and it will extend the previous deadline of March 31 to September 30, 2021.

HB2623 - Cap on Insulin:  This bill places a limit on the amount a person could be charged for their insulin under a health benefit plan in Oregon.  The bill would cap the cost of insulin at $75 for a 30-day supply, and $225 for a 90-day supply. The Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS) would review the price annually and would be allowed to adjust the cap based on changes to the cost of living.

HB3389 - Unemployment Insurance Relief: I am proud to be a sponsor of this bill which will provide $2.4 billion in unemployment insurance relief to small businesses who have been impacted the most. Normally, a large jump in unemployment claims would trigger increases in UI tax rates.  This bill will remedy that by adjusting how UI rates are calculated and excluding 2020 and 2021 from businesses’ “experience ratings. It also provides nearly $100 million in relief this year and has the long-term goal of reducing taxes collected by $2.4 billion while maintaining the solvency of the unemployment insurance trust.

HB3115 - Protecting Survival Activities in Public Spaces:  I am proud to be a sponsor of this bill as well.  It ensures that individuals experiencing homelessness are protected from fines or arrest for sleeping or camping on public property when there are no other options.  In 2019, the federal court ruling in the case of Martin v. City of Boise required local governments to reconsider how they treat people who are experiencing homelessness. The court found that “as long as there is no option of sleeping indoors, the government cannot criminalize indigent, homeless people for sleeping outdoors, on public property, on the false premise they had a choice in the matter.” Plainly, local governments cannot adopt ordinances that criminalize homelessness when no alternative is made available. HB 3115 operationalizes the principles of that landmark decision.

2508 - Telehealth Updates - This  bill codifies the expanded telehealth guidance and safeguards access to physical and behavioral health services for thousands of Oregonians; especially rural, and historically marginalized communities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, telehealth has been critical to providing accessible, physical and behavioral healthcare. Going forward, telehealth opportunities will lower the multiple and varied barriers to healthcare that rural and marginalized communities experience.


Special Shoutouts!

Volunteers vaccinating our communities!

 In honor of National Volunteer Week (April 18-24), we   want to celebrate and highlight the incredible work   volunteers are doing across the state to vaccinate folks   against COVID-19.

 Special shoutout to Sue Moerer who worked as a   registered nurse and felt it was her duty as a retired healthcare worker to volunteer. She recently participated at a drive-through clinic in Washington County where hundreds of people were vaccinated and plans to help at the Portland International Airport vaccine clinic soon.  

Volunteers delivering meals!

Special shoutout and thank you to the workers and volunteers at the Senior centers in Hillsboro, North Plains and Forest Grove who teamed up to raise funds for the Meals on Wheels People as part of the 4th-Annual “Stride for Seniors” walkathon event. This event raised critical funds for Meals on Wheels, whose home-delivery meal services have expanded and become more vital during the coronavirus pandemic.

Updates from Salem


Bill Passed Protecting Survival Activities in Public Space

* This information comes from the House Majority Office press release. 

  • Yesterday, the House passed House Bill 3115, which will ensure that individuals experiencing homelessness are protected from fines or arrest for sleeping or camping on public property when there are no other options.
  • Without adequate alternatives like housing, shelter, and safe camping spaces, some Oregonians are left with no option but to sleep outside in public spaces – in a park, under an overpass, or wherever they can find shelter and safety.
  • House Bill 3115 affirms a key principle of current case law: if a city chooses to regulate “survival activities”like sitting, lying, sleeping or keeping warm and dry, those laws must be reasonable. They must take into account the resources available to houseless individuals and the impact of the regulations on persons experiencing homelessness. This statutory framework will also protect individuals experiencing homelessness from fines or arrest for sleeping or camping on public property when there are no other options.
    • HB 3115, which passed 36-22, now moves to the Senate for consideration. The full list of housing policy and budget priorities developed by Speaker Kotek and the chairs of the House and Senate Housing Committees can be found here.


Oregon Senate extends grace period for past-due rents

* This article comes from Hillsboro News-Times. Click the link above to read more.

  • A strong bipartisan vote of the Oregon Senate has advanced a bill that gives tenants more time to pay past-due rent and protects their future ability to rent.
    • The 25-5 vote on Wednesday, April 14, sent Senate Bill 282 to the House, where the chairwoman of the relevant committee has already taken part in shaping the bill.
    • Its key provision would not extend the current pandemic-related moratorium on evictions past June 30, or forgive back rent. But the bill would give tenants until Feb. 28, 2022, to pay back any rents due from April 1, 2020, or make arrangements to obtain rental assistance. The current deadline is June 30.
  • Tenants would have to stay current on rent after July 1. But they could not be evicted for nonpayment of past-due rent during the extended grace period.


Oregon legislative logjam lifted in redistricting compromise

* This article comes from Hillsboro NewsTimes. Click the link above to read more.

  • Minority Republicans gained a voice in shaping the redrawing of legislative and congressional district boundaries. The relevant House committee will have Democratic and Republican co-leaders — and the House Republican leader was added to the committee for an even 3-3 split.
  • In return, majority Democrats can proceed with more than 80 bills, most of them noncontroversial, without having to have them read aloud before final votes. Republicans had refused to waive the bill-reading requirement, which slowed the House to voting on a trickle of bills each day, depending on the length of their texts.
  • The House resumed its session Thursday morning.

Vaccine Updates

Still having trouble finding a vaccine appointment in Oregon or Washington? Try these tips

* This article comes from KGW8 News. Click the link above to read more.

  • Starting Monday, April 19, everyone 16 years and older will be eligible for the COVID vaccine in Oregon.
  • KGW’s vaccine team hears from people every day that are still having trouble finding an appointment, citing website issues or appointments being taken too quickly. 

We rounded up the best ways to secure your shot below. 

  • Sign up at “Get Vaccinated Oregon” 
    • This is your first step in securing a COVID vaccine. It takes minutes to sign up, simply answer a few questions, and then you'll be notified of vaccine appointments near you. Those in the Portland metro area and Columbia County will likely go to the Oregon Convention Center for their vaccination.
  • Know when appointments are added
    • Knowing when appointments are released on each site is extremely important when trying to schedule a COVID vaccine. 
      • OHSU Drive-up sites: (Portland International Airport, Hillsboro Stadium): Most weekday mornings at 9 a.m.
      • OHSU Clinics: Appointments for OHSU Clinics at Multnomah Pavilion, Richmond (SE Portland) and Scappoose are released on Thursday mornings at 9 a.m.
      • Salem Health sites: (State fairgrounds, Woodburn, Western Oregon University): Monday, Wednesday and Friday at noon.
      • Safeway/Albertsons: New appointments added Thursdays at 5 p.m.
      • Fred Meyer: Updated daily according to store-by-store availability.
      • CVS Health: Recommended: Right after 12 a.m. or first thing in the morning.
      • Walgreens: “We’re not able to provide timing updates right now, but customers can sign up to receive alerts about available vaccine appointments here. Thank you for your time and consideration, and we will provide additional updates and information as they become available.”
      • Walmart: “We open up appointments on the Walmart and Sam’s site each day, and appointments are available on a rolling 7-day basis. So, today, you can schedule appointments for today – Sunday, April 18. Tomorrow, you’ll be able to schedule appointments for 4/13-4/20, and so on.”
      • Bi-Mart: “The only stores that have Pharmacies in the Portland area now is Forest Grove and McMinnville. When the pharmacies get Vaccine sent to them from the County or State then people can set up appointments. It can vary on when they get the vaccine, so it’s best to check the web site daily to see if they’re taking appointments.”
  • Other tips from the KGW vaccine team:
    • Once you’ve answered your eligibility questions on the OHSU portal, keep the scheduling link handy to paste in different browsers. If you become disconnected from the page use that same link so you don’t have to answer all the questions again.
    • Create an account before you sign up for an appointment, for example, a My Chart account before scheduling at the OHSU airport drive-through.
    • Keep trying! Refresh your page often.
    • Check your county’s public health page often! That’s where you’ll find info about community pop-up sites.
    • Try pharmacies outside your county.


Washington Co. Vaccine Information:

There is still less vaccine supply than necessary to meet the needs of everyone who is eligible and wants the vaccine. We ask for your continued patience until we get more vaccine (coming soon!).

Please do not double-book or no-show for your appointment.

Oregon Convention CenterSign up here and you will be sent an invitation when a vaccine is available to you. Names are selected at random from eligible pool.

OHSU drive-thru clinics at Hillsboro Stadium and PDX Airport Red Economy Lot: Schedule online via OHSU's tool. New appointments are released at 9 a.m. on Mondays and Thursdays at the very least. Other days are often added at the last minute, so you might want to visit OHSU's page weekdays at 9 a.m. if you are looking for an appointment. 

Local pharmacies:

Washington County is following advice from the FDA and CDC to pause the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine while the agencies investigate rare cases of blood clots. Nearly 7 million doses of the J & J vaccine have been given in the U.S., and 6 women developed this rare, but serious blood clot disorder within 13 days of receiving the vaccine. If you received the J&J vaccine and develop severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain or shortness of breath within three weeks after vaccination contact your health care provider. Read the FDA's statement.

One-year anniversary of OHA’s Spanish Facebook page, OHA en Español 

* This article comes from the Oregon Health Authority Press Release. Click the link above to read more.

  • One year ago today, Oregon Health Authority (OHA) answered the call to meet Spanish-speaking Oregonians where they are and launched our first Spanish language social media page. Through this platform we’ve been able to connect and communicate daily with people who need and/or prefer to receive health information in Spanish.  
  • At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we offered bilingual messages on OHA’s English Facebook page. Soon after, we realized that wasn’t enough. We needed a communication channel that was exclusively in Spanish and shared content that met both language and cultural needs. 
  • OHA’s Community Partner Outreach Program (CPOP) worked in close collaboration with OHA’s Health Information Center to ensure that people had access to helpful, life-saving information through OHA en Español. During this last year we’ve talked about COVID-19, wildfires, community resources, health coverage, winter storms, financial resources and many more important topics. For the first time, we’ve been able to simulcast press conferences offered by Governor Brown and informational Facebook Live sessions. We have also offered our own Spanish Live sessions and hope to host more in the future.

Early season fire danger prompts Washington County burn ban

* This article comes from Hillsboro NewsTimes. Click the link above to read more.

  • With unseasonably high temperatures and low moisture, the Washington County Fire Defense Board enacted Wednesday a temporary high-fire danger outdoor burn ban across Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue's entire jurisdiction, as well as those of fire agencies in Banks, Gaston, Forest Grove, Cornelius and Hillsboro.
  • Firefighters from multiple agencies responded to about a dozen brush fires in Washington County and northeast Yamhill County just on Tuesday, April 13, said Matt Johnston, spokesperson for Forest Grove Fire & Rescue.
  • Of those, three were caused by high wind blowing into burn piles that became out of control, Johnston said.
  • On Thursday morning, April 15, the National Weather Service issued a special weather statement for much of the western part of Oregon describing unseasonably dry conditions, rising temperatures and high winds.
  • With relatively low amounts of forested land compared to other Oregon counties, Washington County was spared the worst impacts of the most devastating wildfire season in the state's history last year.
  • After last year, wildfire legislation is a high priority for Gov. Kate Brown and Oregon lawmakers, along with legislation addressing the persistent coronavirus pandemic.

Oregon Cattleman's Association provides wildfire assistance

* This article comes from East Oregonian News. Click the link above to read more.

  • The Oregon Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) has provided $45,000 in wildfire assistance to ranchers and Rangeland Fire Protection Associations (RFPAs) impacted by the severe and tragic wildfires from the summer of 2020, which burned over 1 million acres in the state.
  • OCA received 12 applications for assistance with a combined request of over $258,000 for expenses and losses relating to 2020 wildfires. Applications were submitted from Crook, Harney, Jackson, Lake, Linn, Morrow, and Wasco counties, with the majority of applicants residing in Lake County. Funds were provided to every applicant and ranged from the smallest amount of $500 to the largest amount of $13,700 provided to an individual applicant.
  • This assistance was made possible due to the large generosity from Northwest Farm Credit Services and the various donors who made contributions to OCA’s Wildfire Assistance fund since September of 2020.

Employment Department Updates

Oregon House Passes COVID-19 Unemployment Insurance Relief Bill 

* This article comes from the Oregon House Press Release. 

  • In response to the ongoing economic fallout from the global COVID pandemic, the Oregon House tonight passed House Bill 3389, which will provide $2.4 billion in unemployment insurance relief to small businesses who have been impacted the most.
    • The bill recognizes that because of the impact of necessary public health responses to the pandemic, Oregon businesses faced unprecedented levels of layoffs. Normally, such a jump in unemployment claims would trigger increases in UI tax rates, at a time when small businesses are struggling to get back on their feet. HB 3389 will remedy that by adjusting how UI rates are calculated and excluding 2020 and 2021 from businesses’ “experience ratings.”
    • HB 3389 provides nearly $100 million in relief this year and has the long-term goal of reducing taxes collected by $2.4 billion while maintaining the solvency of the unemployment insurance trust.
    • To limit spikes in unemployment insurance tax rates, HB 3389 makes changes regarding the calculation and payment of unemployment insurance taxes to provide employers immediate and longer-term relief.
    • The bill codifies a policy the Oregon Employment Department has in place allowing employers to defer up to one-third of their 2021 tax obligation without accruing interest or penalties until June 30, 2022. It also forgives those deferred payments up to 100% for some businesses most affected by COVID-19 closures.


Oregon lawmakers advance bill to moderate collection of unemployment debt

* This article comes from OPB News. Click the link above to read more.

  • Oregon lawmakers will consider a bill that would change how the state recoups money it overpaid to people who are unemployed.
    • Senate Bill 172 passed out of committee Tuesday. It now heads to the full Senate.
    • Overpayments happen when the state gives someone more unemployment benefits than they are entitled to. The amounts can be large, especially when the state later decides someone should not have received benefits at all. Accidental overpayments have left some jobless people owing the state thousands of dollars during the pandemic.
    • SB 172 would give the Oregon Employment Department the ability to waive more overpayments. It would also limit how long the state can collect some debts.
      • Overpayments fall into three basic categories. Sometimes claimants commit fraud, willfully misrepresenting the facts to get benefits. Many other people make honest mistakes — perhaps when applying for benefits in English while struggling with a language barrier. Overpayments also happen when the state makes errors, laws change, or an employer provides bad information — not the person receiving benefits.
  • SB 172 would not affect how the state recoups benefits obtained fraudulently.
  • But the measure could change the state’s approach when people just make mistakes. It would allow the Employment Department to waive those overpayments in cases of economic hardship.
  • Right now, that’s not an option. Waivers are only granted for the third category of overpayments — those, such as agency error, that aren’t considered a person’s fault.
  • SB 172 would limit collection efforts to five years when overpayments result from a person’s mistake.
  • The bill would also require notices of overpayments to be written more clearly and include the reason for the overpayment, the consequences of the overpayment and the possibility of getting a waiver.
  • Finally, the measure would allow the Employment Department to offset part of a person’s future benefits when it collects overpayments, rather than their full weekly payment. The intent is to avoid completely depriving out-of-work Oregonians of income when they are most in need.

Other Assistance Updates

Funeral assistance available through FEMA for deaths due to COVID-19

* This article comes from the Oregon Health Authority Press Release. Click the link above to read more.

  • The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is offering funeral assistance for deaths due to COVID-19. If you have COVID-19 funeral expenses, FEMA encourages you to keep and gather documentation. Types of information should include:
  • An official death certificate that attributes the death directly or indirectly to COVID-19 and shows that the death occurred in the United States, including the U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia.
  • Funeral expenses documents, such as receipts and funeral home contracts, that include the applicant’s name, the deceased person’s name, the amount of funeral expenses and the dates the funeral expenses happened.
  • Proof of funds received from other sources specifically for use toward funeral costs. FEMA is not able to duplicate benefits received from burial or funeral insurance, financial assistance received from voluntary agencies, government agencies or other sources.

Fed stimulus drops $4.26 billion in Oregon cities, counties

* This article comes from the Mollala Pioneer News. Click the link above to read more.

  • The $1,400 checks to individuals is the best known part of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan approved by Congress earlier this month.
  • But alongside unemployment aid, COVID-19 funds and other spending is money for states, counties and cities to use to backfill their budgets.
  • In Oregon, that amounts to just over $4.26 billion — the state gets $2.62 billion, counties receive $818 million, larger cities get $438 million, and other communities receive $243 million.
  • There's another $1.55 million for state construction and renovation projects.
  • The 278 local allocations range from $10,000 for the city of Antelope (population 50) in Wasco County to $159.65 million for Multnomah County.
  • The package was proposed by President Joe Biden and approved by narrow Democratic majorities in the House and Senate. Biden hailed the legislation as generating "economic growth for the entire nation."


Oregon Fisheries to receive $13 million in disaster assistance

* This article comes from Newport NewsTimes. Click the link above to read more.

  • U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley announced recently that Oregon fisheries will receive more than $13 million in fisheries assistance from the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
  • The allocation of an additional $255 million in fisheries assistance from the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 will support activities previously authorized under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The resources will be allocated to states and territories with coastal and marine fisheries hurt by COVID-19.
  • The funding will address direct and indirect COVID-19 impacts to eligible fishery participants, including commercial fishermen, charter businesses, qualified aquaculture operations, subsistence, cultural, and ceremonial users, food processors and other fishery-related businesses. Congress also designated $30 million for all federally recognized tribes in coastal states. Eligible fishery participants should work with their state or territory’s marine fisheries management agencies to understand the process for applying for these funds.
