RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I'm listening to the evening rerun and someone posted the concern that this proposal would deny lawmakers the experience of engaging with opposing views, or would deny access to the lawmakers at the seat of government.
However, I feel that the opposing views can be found in their own district, and if the lawmaker is in their own district more (most?) of the time, their own consistuents with opposing views would have better access, and the lawmakers would have poorer excuses for limiting access to their office.
It would require lobbyists to run around the state for their face time, but that is what they are paid to do, and I don't see the change as being a bad thing.
