As the “off year” state legislature winds down, criticism is going up about its effectiveness.

State Capitol

We’re coming out of the second “off year” state legislative session since the “tweener” sessions were approved by the voters in 2010. The voters were told that the off-year sessions were needed to adjust the state budget because a lot can happen over the two years the legislature is not in session.

Well, a funny thing happened on the way to these off-year sessions. After our second installment it appears to many that they’re being used as a method to get a lot done with issues not at all related to the state budget. Conflicts over medical marijuana regulations is a prime example. In short, these “tweener” sessions are seen as producing more legislative mischief heading into the next election than well vetted progress from a political standpoint, and practically no meaningful adjustments to the running two year budget.

More on all this from The Oregonian. Click here.
