Republicans in Oregon walk out over environment bill

A large number of Oregon Republican state senators walked out of the Capitol on Monday, which ultimately prevented the upper chamber a quorum to pass a vote on a bill which was designed to cap greenhouse emissions. The walkout was similar to the one last year when Republican legislators looked to stop the passage of a similar measure.

As somebody who lived in OR for most of their life. Anytime a tax is passed, even the poor pay for it, no improvements are made and Kate Brown's pockets deepen. There's even a flat arts tax. As my wife says "I'm not paying some yuppie to draw broccoli on the side of the road".
