SALEM, Ore. -- Gov. Kate Brown will convene a special session of the Oregon Legislature on Monday, Dec. 21, to help communities impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and wildfires. 

The governor is asking the legislature to consider both critical policies and $800 million in relief to support Oregonians during the one-day special session.

“We must protect Oregonians now, as we face some of our hardest days, whether by getting critical resources into the hands of those most in need, keeping a roof over people’s heads, or recognizing the incredible toll of this virus on our small businesses and restaurants," Brown said. 

Aid for tenants and landlords, funding for vaccine distribution and contact tracing, wildfire prevention and support for reopening schools are included in the governor's budget priorities. 

The special session will begin Monday at 8 a.m.
