Rep. Cliff Bentz, R-Ontario, will hold a series of town hall meetings across District 60 over the next three months, including one in Dayville.
At each meeting, Bentz will review the 2017 legislative session and the statewide Transportation Package and will preview issues such as water measurement and fees, carbon cap and trade, wildlife management, Department of Environmental Quality rules regarding cleaner air and storm water discharge, tax reform, the public employee retirement system and other issues that are likely to come up in the future, according to a press release.
“It is important to share what has happened and is likely to happen in Salem, and these meetings also provide an opportunity for people to share their concerns with me,” Bentz said.
“Although I have already met with and reported to each of my five County Courts (Malheur, Baker, Grant, Harney, and Lake counties) and several of the area chambers of commerce, these meetings have been held during the middle of the day when most ranchers and farmers cannot attend. These next six meetings are scheduled in the evenings and in smaller towns so that people who live far from the county seats and work during the day have a better chance of being able to attend.”
