What Happened in Salem This Year: EP 008

Salem Capitol buildingEvery other year, the Oregon Legislature meets for a short session—35 days—to discuss budgets and other timely issues. This year was a whirlwind for housing advocates and others looking to squeak through some laws.

For this episode of “Why Isn’t Anyone…?” Team members Justin Buri and Vivian Satterfield are joined by Kristina Narayan from the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon to discuss what went down in Salem during February and what that means for inclusionary zoning and other hoped-for changes.

Correction to the audio: HB 4071, the COFA Premium Assistance Program, was amended and passed with continuous funding.
