SALEM, OR – Today, during a joint press conference with Speaker Dan Rayfield (D-Corvallis) and Majority Leader Julie Fahey (D-Eugene), House Republican Leader Vikki Breese-Iverson (R Prineville) announced the 2023 House Republican Legislative Priorities.
Leader Breese-Iverson began by highlighting the current status of our state.
“It is no secret that Oregon is at a crossroad. Despite record funding for our public education system, we continue to rank near the bottom of the national average… Oregon farmers and ranchers produce over 13 percent of our Gross Domestic Product, and even though we continue to hear about food uncertainty for many Oregonians, these producers continue to be sent a message that their farms and ranches are not valued in our state. This is not the Oregon I was raised in, know, and love,” according to Leader Breese-Iverson’s remarks as prepared.
The Republican Leader identified four key priorities for the 2023 Legislative Session:
• Prioritizing Fiscal Responsibility
• Addressing Housing, Homelessness, and Mental Health
• Supporting Law Enforcement and Increasing Community Safety
• Protecting Rural Oregon and Our Natural Resource Economy
“Although there are no shortage of issues to address, we are ready to get to work. Oregonians deserve nothing less,” according to Leader Breese-Iverson’s remarks as prepared.
