Oregon legislators must fully fund drug addiction programs that Oregonians voted for

TAKE ACTION NOW

Oregon voters made history by passing Measure 110, the Drug Addiction Treatment & Recovery Act, which decriminalized personal possession of all drugs and expanded access to addiction treatment and other health services.

Halting drug arrests is only the beginning; we need to keep up the pressure and remind legislators to fully fund this new law so that more Oregonians can access life-saving treatment and recovery services. Tell your Oregon legislators to fund these vital programs without delay.

I'm a constituent writing to you with an urgent request.

Please prioritize fully funding Measure 110, the Drug Addiction Treatment & Recovery Act, this year. This new Oregon law will increase access to life-saving addiction treatment and recovery services that people experiencing substance use disorder - and their loved ones - desperately need. I ask that you pass the bill and fund it as quickly as possible so that life-saving services can be provided through the state without additional delay.

Oregonians across the state voted to pass the measure into law by a 17-point margin. We made our voices clear that it's time to shift Oregon away from criminalizing drug addiction to treating it as a health issue that requires care and treatment. As your constituent, I am counting on you to make sure that the will of the voters is carried out by fully funding the law this year.

Oregonians have made themselves clear: It's time to stop punishing people for addiction and transition to a more humane and effective approach. I'm counting on you to be my voice in Salem and make sure that this new law is fully funded without delay, as voters intended.

Sincerely,
