Republican House Minority leader Mike McLane released a statement today blasting House Speaker Tina Kotek for violating Oregon House procedural rules.
The Democratic majority has already created hurdles to the referral of the health care tax they enacted last session when they passed a law allowing a Democratic controlled special panel to write the ballot title. Now according to Leader McLane, Speaker Kotek not satisfied with being able stack the committee ignored a House rule requiring her to simply consult with McLane on the appointees.
Since there is no requirement for Kotek to weigh McLane’s input, it seems the only reason she failed to follow the rule was because she could and there would be no consequences.
