Sample testimony (copied from WRAP materials):
To the House Committee on Judiciary
The criminalization of homelessness harms our entire community: public funds are drained by security and "clean-up" initiatives that ultimately work to further entrench our most vulnerable into poverty. HB 2367 would ensure that all Oregonians have the right to exist in public space without the threat of harassment, citation, or arrest.
Please move HB 2367 with a do pass recommendation.
SB 282-4 - Extend the eviction moratorium grace period (SUPPORT)
This bill was passed out of committee in the Senate. It now needs to go before the Senate.
SB 291-4 - Screening Requirements (SUPPOT)
This bill has passed in the Senate and is awaiting action in the House.
SB 838 - Establishing real property owner registry (SUPPOT)
This bill has a work session scheduled on Thursday, April 8th, 1 PM
