"Not so good. my (state) representative has supported the legislation from the beginning, and the campaign was hoping that she could bring some others along. She reported no progress.My (state) senator is still riding the fence. He is afraid that supporting this legislation will somehow offend the troops. Read the Oregonian article I just posted -- It's very frustrating.I am the person who got (currently our congressman) Kurt Schrader's signature on the petition, and now he is telling the press that he wouldn't sign it today -- like it is some sort of betrayal to want to make sure that when people go into a combat zone to kill and be killed, that there is valid authority to compel it. It is very difficult for me to understand that logic, but that argument comes up again and again."
