Salem, Ore.-- On Monday, CAUSA held it’s Annual Advocacy Day at the Oregon State Capitol. Around 100 people met with 66 legislative offices throughout the day to discuss important issues affecting Oregonians.
The issues discussed during the individual meetings with legislators included driver's license access restoration, tuition equity & quality education, public safety, healthcare equity, affordable housing, and jobs & economic recovery.
Among the top issues, constituents urged state representatives to support and pass Oregon’s bi-partisan Tuition Equity Bill—SB 742. The legislation, which has broad support from both sides of the aisle, capitalizes on taxpayer investment in K-12 students, moves engaged young immigrants toward citizenship, helps them build productive futures in Oregon and will boost the education level of the workforce of Oregon.
A hearing is scheduled for next Wednesday, May 11th in the House Rules Committee at 3:00pm at the Oregon State Capitol. Those who support the bill are encouraged to attend.
To contact members of the House Rules Committee and your member of the Oregon House of Representatives to urge them to vote "YES" on SB742, please link here: http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5535/t/4202/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=1470
