Tomorrow, Friday April 8, the House Business and Labor Committee will hear important bills having to do with the reform of the Public Employee Retirement System (PERS). We need you to take action immediately to let your Legislator know how you would like him or her to vote on these bills. AFP-Oregon has been running TV ads across Oregon over the past several weeks, pointing out the tremendous need for PERS reform. We have special website through which you can urge your Legislators to take action - Oregon | Americans for Prosperity. The message that is sent to your Legislators through this site is editable - we encourage you to include reference to the following bills, asking your Legislators to support the AFP position.
