Call Your State Representative to Protect ORS 181

Important protections in Oregon Revised Statute 181 need your help. As we've reported previously, there are Oregon House bills which attack the protections of Oregon Revised Statutes 181.575 and 181.850.

Specifically, the two bills most in need of immediate opposition are HB 2539 and HB 2554 -- the identical bills which undermine both of the above provisions by allowing Oregon law enforcement to engage in currently-prohibited spying activity merely because a Federal official has asked them to do so. In addition, there is HB 2051, which would repeal ORS 181.850 altogether, allowing Oregon police to enforce INS regulations. What can you do? [ Find out... ] Portland Bill of Rights Defense Committee
