Yesterday, the Oregon Senate Judiciary Committee voted 3 to 2 down the party line to move Senate Bill 1551 to the Senate Rules Committee. As previously reported, SB 1551 would criminalize the otherwise lawful private transfer of firearms. This move is most likely due to the fact that the Senate Rules Committee is not subject to the same deadline requirements as other committees. Now, more than ever, it is critical to contact members of the Senate Rules Committee and express your OPPOSITION to this overreaching legislation.
Using the contact information provided below, please call AND e-mail members of the Senate Rules Committee and respectfully urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 1551.
Senate Rules Committee:
Senator Diane Rosenbaum (D-21), Chairman
Senator Ted Ferrioli (R-30), Vice-Chairman
Senator Lee Beyer (D-6)
Senator Ginny Burdick (D-18)
Senator Bruce Starr (R-15)
