Pam Beery and Chris Crean presented to the Oregon House Committee on Land Use and the Senate Committee on Rural Communities and Economic Development on June 18, 2013 at the Oregon State Capitol. The joint committee initiated a request for the presentation in order to more fully understand the annexation and infrastructure funding process coupled with the myriad issues and impacts of Oregon legislation. In concert with their educational piece, various statewide organizations, such as the League of Oregon Cities, Oregon Communities for a Voice in Annexation and the Special Districts Association of Oregon also had the floor to lend real-time examples with perspectives on current challenges in Oregon communities. Pam and Chris were honored to be asked and gratified with the level of interest generated by lawmakers. Their presentation can be found on the publications page at www.gov-law.com.
