02.22.12 CHL PRIVACY SHUFFLED OFF TO RULES COMMITTEE

Actually, watching sausage being made might be preferable.

The long saga of HB 4045 continues. After passing by a wide margin in the House, Senate President Peter Courtney yesterday assigned the CHL privacy bill to the Senate Rules Committee.

They are not obligated to hear it and right now we cannot say if they will. We do assume however that efforts will be made to heavily amend the bill and once again turn it from something simple and easy to understand into a complicated and contradictory distraction.

The Senate Rules Committee is composed of:

Diane Rosenbaum, Chair  sen.dianerosenbaum@state.or.us
503-986-1700

Ted Ferrioli, Vice-Chair  sen.tedferrioli@state.or.us
503-986-1950

Jason Atkinson   sen.jasonatkinson@state.or.us
503-986-1702

Lee Beyer  sen.leebeyer@state.or.us
503-986-1706

Ginny Burdick  sen.ginnyburdick@state.or.us
503-986-1718

Please contact the members of the Committee and request that they simply pass the bill the way it is. Feel free to add to the prepared email. (Burdick’s address will not appear in this prepared email,because…why bother? Feel free do add her if you care to.)
