Edit: SENATOR DEB PATTERSON and REP. PAUL EVANS (D)
The Salem City Club program committee is very grateful to Senator Deb Patterson, D-Senate District 10, for her willingness to step in at the last minute for her colleague Senator Kim Thatcher, who had a scheduling problem and is unable to appear on April 7. Senator Thatcher recommended Senator Patterson as a possible replacement to talk about what is going on in the Senate. Patterson will be joined by Representative Paul Evans, D-House District 20, who will discuss activities in the House.
Halfway through the session, big issues remain to be debated and solutions found. Two local legislators from different parties and chambers will share their thoughts and insights on what is possible before time runs out on Oregon’s 82nd legislative session.
