Oregon Human Rights and Anti-Genocide Act of 2005

According to Sudan Activism Blog:

The Oregon House unanimously passed the Oregon Human Rights and Anti-Genocide Act of 2005 (SB 1089) which divests the state of Oregon from Sudan.

The bill now goes back to the Senate for a procedural concurrence vote before it heads to the Governor. Some amendments were made in the House with input from the Treasurers office that are designed to protect his fiduciary responsibilities as well as the industry standards of prudence and productivity. With the amendments, the Treasurer testified in strong support of the bill. Chief sponsors of the bill include Representative Peter Buckley (D-Ashland), Representative Brian Boquist (R-Dallas), Senator Avel Gordly (D-Portland), Senator Margaret Carter (D-Portland) and Senator Ben Westlund (R-Tumalo).

If the Governor signs the bill, Oregon will be only the second state to divest from Sudan.

You know what to do, you bunch of filthy, matted, dope-addled hand puppets.
