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 have done the same thing in the past with no consequences, why should the Republicans be different.

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.

The Democrats used this same tactic when they were in the minority. Now they want to cry "unfair." Wimps.

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.

I am proud they are standing up for what is right. That is rich that the dims want the Republicans heads when they have done walk outs more than once. Once again, double standard!

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!

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.
