Final Push for Oregon's Tuition Equity -- Please Call NOW

Gresham, Ore.--Last night, students, teachers, community leaders and other supporters of Oregon’s bipartisan Tuition Equity Bill—Senate Bill 742-- gathered at Mt. Hood Community College. The gathering marked the final push to call on Oregon State Representatives to bring Senate Bill 742 to the House Floor for a vote.

The petition to bring Senate Bill 742 to the floor has by today (Tuesday) at 5:00pm to get the necessary signatures. There are already 24 State Representatives signed on.  That just leaves 7 more to go. The bill has gone farther than it has in the past with an 18-11 vote in the Oregon State Senate.  We need your help now more than ever to make Tuition Equity a reality in Oregon.

Please call the following Representatives as soon as possible, and let them know you support SB 742 and would like them to sign the petition and support it, too!

Rep. Jeff Barker 503.986.1428
Rep. Deborah Boone 503.986.1432
Rep. Brian Clem 503.986.1421
Rep. Greg Mathews 503.986.1450
Rep. Arnie Roblan 503.986.1300
Rep. Mike Schaufler 503.986.1448
Rep. Bob Jenson 503-986-1458

Tell them,

“I Support Senate Bill 742 because it’s important for me, for the future of Oregon students and for Oregon as a whole. Please sign the discharge petition to let SB 742 get a vote in the House and please vote yes on this important bill."

Thank you for your continued support to ensure all our youth have access to Higher education
