Oregon Liquor Control Commission Asking For Pot Start-Up

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission, the agency charged with implementing the new law, asked for $583,000 to cover four staff salaries and professional services and travel for the next six months. The funding is intended to pay for staff and services until the beginning of July, the start of the next fiscal year.

Rep. Peter Buckley, D-Ashland, said he expects a legislative committee to address issues around implementing the law and encouraged his colleagues to support start-up funding so the state can get to work.

“I would recommend we begin the work to implement the will of the voters,” he said.
