Oregon Senate Republicans will return to work on Saturday, leader says

SALEM — Oregon Senate Republicans plan to return to the state Capitol and resume voting on bills Saturday morning, caucus leader Herman Baertschiger Jr. said on Friday.

Baertschiger, of Grants Pass, said lawmakers have an obligation to pass budget bills, and he believes lawmakers can complete that work by the midnight Sunday deadline for lawmakers to adjourn. Democrats have a slate of other policy bills they also want to pass, and Baertschiger would not say whether Republicans would waive procedural rules to allow votes on that legislation in the waning hours of the legislative session.

Altogether, more than a hundred bills and resolutions are still pending in the Legislature and need Senate approval.

"There’s no reason to have a special session,” Baertschiger said in a press conference at the Capitol. "If we have a special session, it’s because (Democratic) leadership chose to have a special session.”

1. Throw a tantrum, get what you want

Its gonna be awful hard for democrats to take back a record of "You gave us a super majority, and we used it to cave and give Republicans everything they wanted, repeatedly" and expect to do well next election. This is bad. Very bad.
