NO they are trying to protect all of us Oregon citizens. This is an underhanded bill that will kill Oregon businesses.

I think our Great Governor Brown should send the police after them, hand cuff them, thrown them in jail and fine them. Then make them do their jobs, if they do it again, hand cuff them to their desks

Because you can't just walk out because you didn't get your way. This is supposed to be a democracy where the majority vote counts.......

These are elected officials sent to the capital to do their jobs-running and hiding (and threatening violence) is immature-stand and fight and if you lose, man up-how embarrassing.

They are standing up for the voters. The voters need to vote on this bill at the ballot box.

They’re doing the right thing representing the people that elected them. This should be up to vote by the people of this state. She’s overstepping her boundaries.

Democrats are out of control, all the republicans want is for the bill to go to the voters.

I hope they stay out as long as it takes and to send the police after them is rediculous and fine them is even more rediculous.

Thank God for the Republicans. This is the only way to deal with an incompetent Governor and out of control Super-Majority who won't listen and want to micromanage our lives and tax us into oblivion.

No, they shouldn’t be fined. It was a way to respond to those who wouldn’t listen to them or work with them to come to a mutually good solution for the majority of the state.

Democrats will not negotiate with the Repulicans even to get this onto the ballot so we can all vote on it. The Dems have forced the Republicans out, and they have no other option.

When it has to do is something that should be put before the voters and the voters would not even agree with it, we want our senators to not show up because that bill should never be passed!

Psychologically speaking teens lack the ability to consider consequences prior to making decisions and taking action. This isn't speculation, as there is scientific evidence that support this. Biologically the areas of the brain that are a part of decision making aren't fully developed until later.

If the belief is that adults convicted of violent crimes can be paroled because they won't re-offend, juveniles should also get that chance since they are more likely to change their life path than an adult.

I knew Barb, and to have her beaten by her son while conscious is beyond being eligible for parole . She was so nice and she loved him so much. I do believe some cases should be but not this one
