Director’s Desk: Legislative session leaves little for the poor to celebrate — Opinion

The state Legislature has sent the message that the government cares more about protecting corporations than about protecting poor Oregonians.

The 2017 Oregon legislative session started with big promises. Both the business community and legislators said they would find a way to avoid massive cuts to safety-net programs by creating a revenue package that would tax large corporations.

Unfortunately, the legislative session is ending without much to celebrate.

It’s not surprising.
