SALEM, Ore--- Here are two of the bills Oregon Senators and Representatives have passed.
They voted to create new limits on the death penalty. It would restrict capital punishment to apply to terrorist acts that kill two or more people, killing police officers and kids younger than 14. Lawmakers can't introduce an outright ban on capital punishment without sending the measure to the ballot box. This measure is now heading to Governor Brown.
The other bill is controversial. It would allow undocumented immigrants in Oregon to obtain driver's licenses. It goes to Governor Brown next and she is expected to sign it. When she does, Oregon would be the 14th state to allow this. Activists argue many undocumented immigrants live in rural areas and need to drive. Opponents say since they live here illegally, they shouldn't be allowed to drive at all.
