PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — As the threat of eviction looms over thousands of Oregon households, state lawmakers passed additional safety nets to keep thousands of people housed who are currently struggling to pay rent or are facing eviction. In addition during the one-day special legislative session Monday lawmakers passed a $25 million bill for a comprehensive, statewide plan to address the proliferation of illegal cannabis around the state and ease the associated humanitarian impacts in Oregon. Lawmakers also passed $100 million to help Oregonians impacted by this summer’s extreme heat and drought conditions.
