Legislative Update; May 2023

Dear Friends,

Throughout my tenure in public service, I have fought numerous challenges and faced tough decisions. I have to admit, however, that this past month has been the most difficult in my career so far.

We faced and fought against two dangerous and misguided bills pushed by the the most extreme far-left forces. HB 2002B & HB 2005B will harm Oregonians and violate our constitutional rights. Both bills are now headed to the Senate.

For years, I have been committed to the people I represent. I follow the motto: “No one will outwork me and no one will care more.”

My staff has helped me keep that promise now and all through our whirlwind transition from Curry Commissioner to State Representative. I will always fight for you and will never give up - I can promise you that.

Yours truly,

Court Boice

My fight against HB 2005B

HB 2005B Press Release

Following the vote on HB 2005B, members of the House Republican caucus decided that each one of them will donate $1,000 to immediately challenge this law in court. The total of $25,000 will go towards a lawsuit once this bill goes into effect. I was more than happy to donate and we will continue the good fight. Our rights are not up for a debate.

Parental rights are fundamental to the wellbeing of families and children. I will never back down from supporting the sacred independence of parents to make the best decisions for their children.

Betsy Johnson: Our leaders must all get their ‘stuff’ together to save our state

Opinion: Our leaders must all get their ‘stuff’ together to save our state

OregonLive – By: Betsy Johnson

Everywhere I went in my campaign for governor, when I said, “Oregon cannot succeed if Portland fails,” heads would nod in agreement. Oregonians across the political spectrum instinctively understand the essential role of Portland in the economic, social, and cultural health of our state. Now, we need elected officials need to act with a greater sense of urgency and action to get our beloved Oregon back on track. Boice admires, appreciates, and agrees with former Independent Governor Candidate Betsy Johnson.

Veterans' Corner

I am a proud supporter of SB 1009 which will provide the funds to begin construction of a veterans' home in Roseburg. If passed, the bill will mean $35 million to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to begin the construction.
