Editorial: Brown comes to the aid of imprisoned veterans

Oregon Gov. Kate Brown took on her own Department of Corrections recently, and veterans won. In doing so she not only saved a small group of veterans a bit of money but made it clear to DOC that the law means what it says it does.

The 2017 Legislature approved, and Brown signed, Senate Bill 844, which gave the department the right to collect a portion of inmates’ bank accounts.
