Kitzhaber issues proclamation for Special Session

Gov. John Kitzhaber issued a proclamation convening a Special Session of the state Legislature on Sept. 30.

In his proclamation, the Kitzhaber called on legislators to boost education funding, restore school days, turn the corner on teacher layoffs and provide tuition relief.

“We have an opportunity right now to boost education funding and turn the corner on teacher layoffs and lost school days this year,” Kitzhaber said. “Oregon is on the right track, but we have unfinished business. I urge the Legislature to come together to invest in Oregon students. We need to get it done for Oregon's children, for Oregon's economy, for Oregon's future.”
