  1. “construction companies are permitted to continue building, as long as workers maintain strict social distancing guidelines, the Central Oregon Builders Association says”

    So how exactly are construction companies considered “essential” ? And how are concrete cutters, clean-up crews, wood sanders, painters, insulation teams, and grinders going to do their work without proper masks ?

    On the face of this- good for them- but I’m pretty sure a lot of other industries will now challenge Kate Brown’s Executive Order on the grounds that she is single-handedly deciding which industries survive and which will fail !

    Kate Brown has now reached a new low with the clear implementation of a unilateral Death Panel.

    1. Look at it from her power base – and her Democratic buddies – standpoint, the unions. Then you can figure out why she is letting some work and others not. Getting rid of the union’s competition and gaining political favors?
