Oregon State Sen. Bill Hansell (R-Athena) tells KUMA News that the call issued by Gov. Kate Brown to the Oregon State Police to pick up senators and return them to Salem “has been lifted and will not be reinstated.”

He says Republican senators are beginning to travel home to Oregon.

Hansell says negotiations are continuing in the Republican stand against House Bill 2020, which would, in its opponents eyes, place an undue burden on rural Oregon in the battle to correct climate change.
