So you can watch these committees with your computer for upcoming bills and discussions –
WATCH FOR ANY BILLS LABELED AN EMERGENCY – The first bill I checked was labeled an emergency – When bills are labeled an “Emergency” and they are not really an emergency, as you can gauge by reading – The purpose of putting an Emergency title on a bill is to make it very difficult for the citizens to recall the bill. This particular bill is about insurers offering dental plans outside of health insurance exchange, and a charge imposed on them. Is this really an EMERGENCY? Is this bill necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency is declared to exist, and this 2023 Act takes effect on its passage.
The word EMERGENCY attached to a bill is for REAL emergencies like floods, fires, extreme weather, pandemics, etc, and warfare. This bill is obviously not an emergency.
Also look for a sponsor the bill – This one has Rep Rob Nosse name on it. I e-mailed him and asked him not to title bills an EMERGENCY if they are not an emergency although I doubt he has anything to do with this. Here is another bill labeled an emergency in this committee. This one is sponsored by Rep Mannix.
It is for a study to be done to evaluate the needs and space for treating mental illness. There is no need to put an Emergency clause on this bill. It is a study. It does not need an emergency clause in it to pass or get accomplished – so why use the term EMERGENCY? So I am finishing this up but I am further checking bills to see how many are EMERGENCIES -Do they want us to think that we are living in a perpetual state of EMERGENCY?
I am beginning to think so.
Actually you should contact Gov. Tina Kotek – and tell her that the previous governor started this practice of labeling many bills “EMERGENCY” when they are not emergencies, and as she was labeled the most disliked governor in the United states twice!, It is not advisable for Gov. Kotek to emulate her.
