Oregon legislators wrapped up a three day special session in Salem on Wednesday, passing a trio of bills that pulls down public pension costs, changes tax rates on small businesses and prevents local governments from banning genetically engineered crops – but that’s not to say the state will allow them willy nilly.

Governor John Kitzhaber helped to engineer the special session which was an admission that the regular session left a great deal undone.  Now lawmakers can go home yet again and report to their citizens what the changes mean.

The story is in The Oregonian.  Click here.
