Over at Portland Transport, metro councilor Rex Burkholder points out that we're now 10 months away from the next legislative session.
Now is the time to start developing ideas for legislation, finding sponsors and allies, and trying out your arguments. What changes would you like to see in the laws, what programs you think we should create and fund (and which ones should be killed) and what policies the state should follow in the future?
Over at Portland Transport, they're talking about transportation policy. Share those ideas there.
Here at BlueOregon, we'll ask the same question more generally: What sorts of progressive policies and programs should the next legislature take up? Post your creative ideas in the comments.
Let's use the ol' brainstorming rules that you learned in school - no criticizing other people's ideas in this thread. Instead, post your own creative, progressive idea. (It'll be OK, folks, you can do it.)
