Thomsen And Johnson To Be Part Of Call To Fund Measure 98

26th District Oregon State Senator Chuck Thomsen and 52nd District Representative Mark Johnson will take part in a press conference on Monday calling for the Legislature to fund Measure 98 approved by voters last fall.  The ballot measure requires school districts to allocate $800 per student for career-technical courses, college credit courses, and dropout intervention programs.  But many in the legislature want to amend or delay the measure as the state budget faces a one-point-eight billion dollar budget gap.  Thomsen says the funds should be added on top of K-12 education allotments.  Three Portland-area Democrats:  Rod Monroe, Jeff Reardon, and Janeen Sollman, will take part with the two Hood River-area Republicans in the press conference.
