State Bank bill passes committee... let's thank Senator Shields!
Today is the deadline for bills in the Oregon State Senate to leave their committee of origin–or die. This last-minute legislative rush leaves plenty of good bills waiting until next term.
However, thanks to the leadership of Senator Chip Shields and the hard work of the Legislative Fiscal Office, the State Bank bill passed out of committee today.
You went above and beyond he call of duty, working down to the wire to ensure that the state bank bill could pass out of committee today.
This is a great first step towards supporting Oregon's small businesses, family farmers, and local community bankers!
