Where are Joe Rowe and Tina Kotek different? Health Care, Rent Control, No Cause evictions.
See Tina pass laws for corporations!
- HB2922 (Assigned committee members who killed Health Care as a human right in Oregon, won't join 23 co-sponsors),
- SB863 (GMO/Monsanto Voted yes, along with every Republican who voted)
- HB4200 (Voted yes, Tax Break for Nike )
- HB2800 (Voted yes 30 year debt of $5 billion to $10 billion
- HB2236 (assigned committee members who killed it)
- SB861 (Voted yes, cut pensions for low income seniors, assigned committee members who wrote it)
HB2922 Health Care as a Human Right. Tina refused to cosponsor. Chip Shields (North Portland Senator) co-sponsored it. 23 Democrats co-sponsored. There are 90 lawmakers, so this should have passed easily with Democrats in the Majority. http://gov.oregonlive.com/bill/2013/HB2922/
HB2336 Tina silent, refused to co-sponsor a law for cleaner air, died because Kotek appointed the committee that killed it.
Yes Sen. Chip Shields co-sponsored HB2336, He's your senator for District 44
SB863 Tina Voted Yes, Monsanto protection act. Prevents Portland from labeling GMO foods. Kotek appointed the committee
Declared a false emergency
Kotek voted yes, as did every republican lawmaker who voted, SB863. This law tells you where she stands when the chips are down. Senator Shields from Tina's same district opposed the Monsanto Protection act, Sen. Shields voted NO! Most democrats voted NO. Rep. Tina Kotek often stands with Republicans to undermine progressive issues. She stands with Corporations. She did vote horse trading and was the lead negotiator to pass SB863.
HB 4200 Tina voted Yes. Allowed Nike $150 million back door deals. (Click here PDF) PDF is written and signed by the Gov and Nike
See item 3b. 500 jobs created by Nike and gift of $150 million from taxpayers. Do the math. It's an average of 300k per one job Nike creates.
HB2800 Tina voted Yes. Take out 30 year bonds to spend $3 billion to construct a freeway and pay another $2-7 billion in bond interest and related costs and cost overruns. Declares a false emergency. WA stated rejected "sufficient funds". Oregon now wishes to pay for WA state debt of $ billion with a plan called the "Oregon Only CRC" plan.
SB861 Tina voted Yes. Senator Shields voted no. Cut the cost of living increase. This is unconstitutional and breaks contracts to keep money for low income people in line with inflation.
Kotek attempted to push laws for big corporations to sell hard liquor in Oregon ( Costco, Walmart) Data collected by reporters shows that our liquor is cheaper than WA state with liquor in every store. People in Oregon can't buy liquor on impulse or at all times. This is a good thing we need to preserve.
