Oregon looks to stop suspending licenses for unpaid fines (HB2614)

On Monday, the Oregon Legislature looked at a bill that stops courts throughout the state from suspending people’s driver’s licenses because of unpaid court fees and traffic tickets.

“We don’t want to be punishing people just for being poor,” said state Rep. Jeff Barker, D-Aloha.

House Bill 2614 is still in its early stages but Barker is hopeful it passes.
