Tillamook County Conservatives:
The “Emergency Clause” enacts a bill immediately after being passed It is usually tacked on to the end of a bill. This procedure is extremely misused. It must be brought under control. I urge you to become aware of the situation and sign the petition to help put a stop to this practice.
Yours In Liberty,
Thomas M. Donohue

As you know, SB 941, the Prozanski/Hoyle gun owner registration bill, was passed with an “emergency clause.
This is the process that races the bill into effect and essentially eliminates the public’s ability to refer it to a vote of the people.
There are many games the establishment in Salem plays to limit citizens’s involvement, but this is one of the most egregious.
“Emergency” clauses are supposed to be used for “the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety” but the process is commonly abused with “emergency” clauses being attached to bills dealing with subjects as mundane as vanity license plates and interior decorators.
Real emergencies are rare, abuses of the process are common. It’s time to put a stop to the fabricated “emergencies” and return power to the people. And you can help.
Please visit http://nofakeemergencies.com/ to learn more about this absurd game and sign the petition to place a measure on the ballot to stop the charade.
You can download a petition online and mail it in. Please share this information with your friends, family and neighbors who are also tired of having their voices silenced by fake emergencies. This is a constitutional amendment, so we need every signature we can get. Thank you.
