“House Republican Leader Christine Drazan (R-Canby)released the following statement on Governor Kate Brown’s Executive Order No. 20-04.
“I am not surprised that the governor has moved to overextend her authority to advance a flawed vision of leadership that exposes our state to litigation. This is not only an abuse of power, it shows how out of touch the governor is with the pressing needs of families and communities across the state.”
“Oregon struggles to protect foster kids, improve graduation rates and address homelessness, but rather than acknowledge the need for greater leadership in these essential areas the governor misdirects time and attention away from core functions and our shared priorities to double down on climate at any cost.”
