National Popular Vote Moves Ahead in Oregon Legislature

On May 18, the Oregon House Rules Committee passed HB 2927, the national popular vote plan bill. It now moves to the house floor, where it has passed in three previous sessions of the legislature. The bill has always been blocked by Senate President Peter Courtney, a Democrat. However, Courtney now says he will not block the bill if it is amended to provide that the voters will vote on the plan in November 2018, and that only if the voters approve it will it become law.
