Oregon gov orders police to chase GOP senators who fled Capitol to dodge vote
The Governor sends the police out to round up the “bad guys.” Very wild west.
The legislators on the lam want to force a referendum. The Dems don’t want one.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown deployed the state police Thursday to try to round up 12 Republican senators who fled the Legislature — and in some cases, the state — to thwart the passage of a cap-and-trade proposal … (on) lower greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The minority GOP caucus wants the plan to be sent to voters instead of being instituted by lawmakers — but negotiations with Democrats collapsed, leading to the headline-grabbing walkout.
