Measure 49: Our chance to fix 37's flaws


Yes on 49


Measure 49:
Our one chance to protect what's special about Oregon

Dear Fellow Oregonian:

When you think of Oregon, what comes to mind?

  • Is it rolling farmland that supports an astonishing array of agricultural products?
  • Is it our majestic forests and clear, clean water?
  • Is it our spectacular coastline, with beaches that belong to all of us?
  • Or is it the fact that all these things combine to give us a quality of life that has disappeared from so many other places?

If these things are as important to you as they are to us, we invite you to visit the "Yes on 49" website.
