Oregon Republicans deny Senate a Quorum; Dems Sacrifice Gun Control Bill

Oregon Democrats have a 3/5ths supermajority in the state Senate which allows them basically free reign over the legislative priorities of the chamber. However, to do actual business, there needs to be a quorum, which is defined as 2/3rds of voting members being present. Since last week, the Republican minority has sent only one senator […]
