The Salem City Council has declared through a resolution passed unanimously that health care is a fundamental right. This occurred at their July 12 meeting
The resolution declares that "individual wellbeing and public health both benefit when all members of a community have real, meaningful access to health care."
It commits the City Council to:
- Support Oregon Senate Joint Resolution 12, which would amend the state constitution, establishing an obligation of the state to ensure "every resident of the state access to cost-effective, clinically appropriate and affordable health care."
- Express support for state-based universal healthcare and send a letter to that effect to the Legislature and Governor.
Send a letter to Oregon's federal delegation urging them to create pathways to establish state-based systems under federal waivers that can remove barriers to receiving federal financial support.
The resolution is designed to address only local actions that the Council can take.
