2019 Oregon Legislative Report

2019 Oregon Legislative Report

When Oregon’s 2019 Legislative Session convened in January, AGC’s Legislative Leadership Team, including 2019 Chapter President Sandy Trainor and Legislative Forum Co-Chairs Dee Burch and Tom Gerding, recognized the chapter faced unprecedented threats that could fundamentally impact all segments of our industry. In response, AGC’s Board of Directors adopted six core legislative priorities, brought forward by the Legislative Leadership Team, and directed AGC’s lobbying team to focus its efforts on the priorities listed here:

  • Defeating SAIF raid
  • Maintaining workers’ compensation system
  • Preventing workplace marijuana accommodation​
  • Limiting diesel equipment regulation​
  • Limiting expansion of public works/prevailing wage laws​
  • Defending Highway Trust Fund (cap and trade)

The chapter’s lobbying team went to work, sometimes leading, sometimes joining, broad-based business coalitions—including, among others, manufacturers, truckers, loggers, materials suppliers, home builders, and the motoring public—to defend our mutual interests. Inside this report, our members will find more detailed information, not only on our successes regarding our six core priorities, but also significant other new laws that our members, industry, and association will be forced to navigate.
