IP57 Ruling Appealed

Oregon’s Attorney General has filed an appeal against the federal court ruling on July 14 (see our webpage for details).

“Whether a federal judge can rewrite the state constitution‘s procedures for constitutional amendments is a question that goes to the heart of the state’s power to create its own laws,” Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum said in a statement Wednesday. “Any final decision made in this case could have long reaching impacts for the state and on future ballot initiatives.” (According to https://mooresvilletribune.com/news/national/govt-and-politics/oregon-ag-appeals-federal-judges-order-on-redistricting-bid/article_48446a06-2c9d-5bd1-99c3-d9fc75adf1da.html).
