Medford, OR – According to the state officials, the visit to Grant County began in Prairie City with a ceremonial bill signing for Senate Bill 955, the AgriStress Suicide Hotline Bill, alongside local leaders from Grant and Wallowa counties and key advocates for the bill.
The Governor and First Lady then traveled to John Day, where they had a conversation about tourism development related to the Kam Wah Chung Heritage Site.
Governor Kotek released the following statement:
“We are 20 counties into our One Oregon Listening Tour, and I continue to be impressed by local leaders and their deep commitment to creating prosperity for all residents.
It’s been great to learn from our rural and frontier communities about what they’re looking for from Salem and the creative solutions they’ve developed to get us to where we need to be.
I look forward to continuing these conversations and bringing these lessons back with me to the Capitol.”
