OSPIRG Releases 2017 Oregon State Legislative Scorecard

Learn how Oregon elected officials voted on key public interest issues
For Immediate Release

Today, OSPIRG released its scorecard for the 2017 Oregon Legislative Session. The scorecard showcases Oregon lawmakers’ votes on key public interest issues, ranging from making health care work better for consumers to strengthening the public’s right to access information about the workings of government.

Key votes covered in the scorecard include:

• Ending surprise out-of-network medical bills (HB 2339)

• Cracking down on the abuse of anonymous shell corporations (HB 2191)

• Debt buyer disclosure (HB 2356)

• Public records reform (SB 106, SB 481, and HB 2101)

“Oregon lawmakers took important, bipartisan steps to advance the public interest in 2017” said Charlie Fisher, OSPIRG State Director. “But critical work remains unfinished. The 2017 Legislative Session ended without action to address the influence of big money in politics, the public health threats caused by the overuse of antibiotics in agriculture, or the skyrocketing cost of prescription drugs.”
