POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Legislative check-in in Salem - June 11, 2009

   

 

Nick with Oregon State Senator Suzanne Bonamici, with whom he penned a recent guest opinion piece in the Oregonian and who is leading the charge on important legislation to help renters and homeowners facing foreclosure.

Nick with Oregon State Representative Tina Kotek, whose good work facilitated the passage of two broad health reform bills this past Monday. The bills aim to contain costs, create a new health agency and add thousands of uninsured adults and children to the state health plan.

 

"Legislators and health care advocates said the bills represent Oregon's biggest leap forward in health reform since it enacted the Oregon Health Plan 15 years ago," wrote Bill Graves in the Oregonian this past Monday.
