Senate Republicans Walk Off The Job, Refuse To Support Oregon Schools
"The only thing standing between Oregon students and a game-changing reinvestment in our schools today is the Senate Republican Caucus.
"Their insistence on blocking a vote on the Student Success Act is petty and disingenuous, and we will not let their disappearing act go unnoticed.
"Oregon voters spoke loud and clear in the most recent election by electing legislators that campaigned on reinvestments in our classrooms. Meanwhile the work of the Joint Committee on Student Success, traveling all over our state for the last year and a half, has ensured that we have a policy and a proposal that will do the greatest amount of good for the greatest number of students across our state.
"There has been plenty of time for input — now is the time for action. Our classrooms are in crisis. It’s time to vote."
