One new bill we are tracking, HB 3321, would require certain nonprofits that receive state funding to abide by open meeting laws, public records laws, and other standards; this is quite concerning to COLT.
We have been speaking with the Nonprofit Association of Oregon about this (they are also more than concerned), and we will provide more information in coming weeks.
The Oregon Agricultural Heritage Program bill (HB 3249) is waiting for its first hearing to be scheduled before the House Agriculture and Natural Resource Committee. Tentatively, it is looking like Tuesday April 4th, but we will send more information out when it is confirmed.
NRCS Oregon will host a webinar for RCPP this coming Wednesday, March 22nd at 11am PST
