OR – R Legislators Flee State over Climate Change Legislation – D Governor Threatens – Armed Police

OR Governor Kate Brown (D)  threatens ARMED POLICE to round up Rep dissent – As Oregon Senate Republicans continued to boycott the Legislature Sunday in an attempt to block a vote on House Bill 2020, a climate change bill. The situation immediately intensified when Republican Brian Boquist (R) told the police to come “heavily armed.”

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) called the police to arms over Republican lawmakers refusing to show up to a climate change legislation session. Some of the legislators fled to Idaho. Others just refused to attend. Governor Brown said that the constitution allows the state to “compel” absent lawmakers. By “compel,” Brown seems to mean dispatching police to arrest the legislators. Because that’s what happened.
