Oregon senator who threatened state police must give notice before returning to the Capitol

Oregon Sen. Brian Boquist must notify the Legislature 12 hours before he plans to be at the Capitol, so that officials can arrange for additional state troopers to ensure the safety of employees and the public.

A legislative committee issued that decision after lengthy deliberations on Monday, in response to Boquist’s threats last month against Senate President Peter Courtney, D-Salem, and state troopers. Boquist, a Dallas Republican, made the statements after Gov. Kate Brown hinted she would consider sending state police to round up Republicans, if they walked out of the Capitol to kill a sweeping climate change bill.

In a June 19 floor speech, Boquist told Courtney, “If you send the state police to get me, hell is coming to visit you personally.”

Later the same day, Boquist suggested in an interview captured by a KGW television crew that he would shoot and potentially kill any state police sent by the governor and Senate president to bring him back to the Capitol.
