GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- About 100 people filled the Grants Pass Performing Arts Center Tuesday morning to hear Senator Ron Wyden speak about a variety of issues and take questions.
Topics covered included forest management, health care, taxes, election security, the national debt, tariffs, and more.
Wyden visits every county to do a town hall every year. He says done about 30 so far this year. This is his 941st town hall during his time in the Senate.
He said town halls have changed over the years, as the national political climate has changed. He stressed, though, these town halls are important to him.
"Political change isn't top down -- it's bottom up," Wyden said. "That's what we saw today -- people speaking out about how they want change."
Wyden visited the NewsWatch 12 studio on Monday. CLICK HERE to see his response about tariff relief. CLICK HERE to see his answers about fire season and Secure Rural Schools funding.
