Governor still seeking votes to pass legislative package
Gov. John Kitzhaber has announced he will call a one-day special legislative session on September 30, 2013. The special session bill package would raise tax revenues to provide $100 million for K-12 education and $40 million for higher education to prevent tuition increases in the 2013-15 biennium.
It is not yet clear whether the legislative caucuses have the votes to pass all the bills in the package.
Kitzhaber has indicated he will sign none of the bills unless all bills pass.
