January Unit Meetings

Welcome 2018 with Unit Meetings
January 8 - 11

We have an interesting program to start the new year.

January Special Election on Measure 101:

At a special election on January 23, Oregon voters will decide whether to repeal sections of HB 2391, a 2017 bill that helped to close a $1 billion budget shortfall by expanding an existing assessment on hospitals. Besides increasing the amount hospitals pay, the bill provides a new assessment formula that would also apply to some health insurance plans and managed care organizations. A “yes” vote would allow HB 2391 to go into effect, while a “no” vote would repeal it.

League members will be provided much more complete information about this measure, labeled Measure 101, at unit meetings during the second week of January. Although the League does not endorse candidates, it does take a stand on selected ballot measures. Based on the recommendations of the LWVOR Action Committee, who worked in support of HB 2391 during the 2017 session, the LWVOR Board recently voted to endorse a “yes” vote on Measure 101.

Position Review and Program Planning:
Those who attend the January Unit Meetings will also participate in a brief program planning session for 2018-19 and weigh in on the work of the LWVCC Positions Review Committee. Over the past several months the Committee, made up of Joan Batten, Marge Easley, Carol Radich, and Janice Green, carefully evaluated the local positions document and agreed on some potential changes to recommend to the Board and the membership. In general, the positions cover many years, and for some, time has moved on. This is your chance to give feedback and suggest areas for study or update before the Annual Meeting in May.
