Oregon: Important Firearm Ownership Privacy Bill to be Heard on Monday by House Committee

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

House Bill 4054 is scheduled to be heard in the state House Health Care Committee on Monday, February 13.  This hearing will be held at 1:00 p.m. in Hearing Room E of the Oregon Capitol.  Sponsored by state Representative Jim Thompson (R-23), HB 4054 would prohibit the Public Employees' Benefit Board from authorizing or requiring the collection of information or maintenance of records about firearms from eligible employees or family members applying for health benefits.

HB 4054 was introduced after state Senate Republican Leader Ted Ferrioli (R-30) secured commitments from both Kaiser Permanente and the Public Employee's Benefit Board to purge gun ownership data that had been collected after implementing a new employee initiative called the "Health Engagement Model."  After Senator Ferrioli's inquiries, both plans dropped the questions related to firearms.

Please call and e-mail members of the state House Health Care Committee TODAY and urge them to support HB 4054.  Their contact information can be found below.
