Today the Oregon Legislature passed two bills. The Senate Rules Committee passed SB 525 to the full Senate floor and the House Judiciary passed SB 385 to the full House floor.
SB 525 does for domestic violence victims what SB 385 does to protect Municipal and Justice Courts. Absolutely nothing.
Everything in both these bills is already in existing law. In both cases the proponents of the bills (often judges and other legal "professionals") displayed such breathtaking ignorance of the law, or a simple willingness to lie, that it makes you hope you never have to go to court. We are seeing a spate of pointless and redundant legislation that is nothing but a squandering of your money.
In the House Judiciary Committee, only Rep. Bill Post, who is the most junior member and one of only two who was never a cop or a lawyer pointed out the flaws in SB 385. The other members and staff who were lawyers, told him he was wrong. But he wasn't. He got it right. The lawyers screwed up.
Tomorrow, as we told you, House Judiciary is scheduled to hear another pointless waste of time. Mark Hass's SB 913.
We believe with enough input, this nonsensical bill can be killed. But you can never underestimate the willingness of some folks to spend other people's money.
