Reps. Discuss Catastrophic Session
Rep. Bill Post and E. Werner Reschke mull the implications

State Representative E. Werner Reschke has presented his case that the state has not met the criteria for a catastrophic session based on Article X-A of the Oregon Constitution. These two State Representatives offer an in-depth perspective in this 47 minute video.

The Northwest Observer reached out to Representative Bill Post and asked him for his perspective on this issue, and he said, “When I was doing a radio talk show, The Bill Post Radio Show, in 2011, I did live shows at the Legislature and tried to warn the legislators that though it might sound like a good idea, it was not. It would be misused one day. Then later when it was a ballot measure, I warned the listeners not to vote yes on the measure as it sounds good but would be misused one day. Well 'one day' is potentially here now!”
