A McMinnville man is helping lead a drive to force referral to voters of Senate Bill 833, which gives driving privileges to people who are here illegally. The campaign is being directed by Oregonians for Immigration Reform, based in Salem. Co-founded by McMinnville resident Jim Ludwick, it needs to gather at least 58,000 valid signatures by Oct. 4 (2013) to force an election.
- I wrote this article for MSCM 375 Reporting. Jim Ludwick spoke with our class as a mock interview, detailing his efforts to bring the bill to voter consideration. One goal of the Reporting class is to have our work published in any publication. The managing editor of the local newspaper published it, saying it was up to par with a professional account.
