SUBMITTED
  • Submitted

Oregon's legislative session is over, but Senate Republicans are about to get their hands on a whole new crop of bills.

Senate leaders said this week they are preparing to invoice 11 Republican senators for fines associated with a June walkout, after determining a plan to dock their pay wasn't legal.

According to Senate President Peter Courtney's office, invoices for $3,500 — $500 per day for seven of the eight days Republicans refused to show up for a floor session — had not been sent as of July 10. —Dirk VanderHart, OPB
