In March, the House defeated HB 2287, causing bill sponsor and Education Committee Co-chair Matt Wingard to spend the rest of the session in a vindicative, destructive mood. But with the Legislature attempting to pass a number of critical education bills before the session ends, including SB 909, the 0-20 “Super Education Board” that is a key component of Gov Kitzhaber’s plans, Wingard has snuck 2287 in for another try. This video details, with a bit of humor, why HB 3645 is the worst bill to come before the Leg in 2011.

Technical note: My Canon Vixia HF10 got broken about 10 days ago, so this was shot with a borrowed Sony Handycam HDV. It's vintage 2003, a really good camera, in fact, but it just doesn't capture the same quality as the Canon. Or perhaps it's a bit much to switch cameras mid-stream. Whatever. Also, having more "free" time of late than I am used to, I started thinking about doing more than talking head/event playback. I clearly go overboard in this video, way too many different things going on, but I needed to get this done, and I really needed to scream out how very loudly I hate this bill. It is the worst bill of 2011.
