Spring 2014 Report to the 49th District

Early this past January, the state House of Representatives jumped quickly out of the starting gate. Just a few hours into session, we passed the “DREAM Act” (SB 6523), a bipartisan step to make sure that all deserving, hard-working young people have a fair chance to go to college. This measure, long-sought here in Washington (and already on the books in many other states), became the first significant “first-day-of-session” bill in many years to pass either chamber.  It is only … Continue reading

Rep. Jim Moeller laments lack of CRC funding in Oregon budget

March 10, 2014

Rep. Jim Moeller

From The Columbian: “The Oregon Legislature adjourned Friday without any action on the proposed Interstate 5 Bridge replacement, prompting state leaders to say they’ll close down the controversial megaproject this spring.” A statement from Rep.
