2012 Regular Legislative Session Day 11 Continued

I can honestly say I witnessed something today that I have never seen before. HB 2225, establishing July 25th as Patient Safety Day, was defeated through a 5-4 vote with two Democrats voting with us against the bill. Absolutely amazing to watch the rest of the Democrats attempt to sway their members to pass the bill. Victory!

Sitting in General Government Appropriations and Oversight now, listening to a presentation from the Columbia Gorge Commission. I am of the opinion the Gorge Commission is an unconstitutional decision making body that should be abolished. It’s time to return all land use decision making authority to the locally elected officials.

I have a 2:30 meeting today with the Republican Caucus of the Environment Committee. Rep. Matt Shea was recently added to the Environment Committee, which adds another pro-property rights member to the Committee. Let the fun begin!
