Statement from Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum on a special legislative session to address SB 1013:
“I am very pleased the Governor supports a special legislative session to address the issues associated with SB 1013, which takes effect on September 29th. We must make sure we get this law right. As the Oregon Attorney General, my chief responsibility is to implement and defend the laws of Oregon, as they are written and adopted. I look forward to working with the legislature during a special session to make sure our courts, prosecutors, defenders, victims and others have the clarity and guidance they need in connection with our most serious criminal cases.”
