Rep. Greg Smith (R-Heppner) will host a 90-minute listening session on Measure 110 on Saturday, Feb. 17.
The event gets started at 10 a.m. at the Port of Morrow’s Riverfront Center, 2 East Marine Drive in Boardman.
Last week, Smith was appointed to serve on the Joint Committee On Addiction and Community Safety Response. This committee will have the task of reviewing Measure 110 and proposing solutions to the public safety and behavioral health crises the state of Oregon is facing.
Measure 110, which voters passed in 2020, decriminalized possession of small amounts of hard drugs.
“I want to hear from my constituents regarding their thoughts on Measure 110 and how the legislature should go about solving the public safety and behavioral health crises the State of Oregon is facing,” said Representative Smith, “this meeting in not for me to deliver a speech or lecture, but rather to listen and ask questions to constituents, law enforcement officers, public safety specialists, and health care professionals”.
