37. Legislative Session Won’t Further Damage Oregon Hospitality

April 21, 2021

In a year like no other, we look at how the 2021 Legislative Session will affect Oregon’s hospitality industry. Our guest and Contract Lobbyist, Bill Perry of Balance Point Strategies delves into the changes to the legislative format during the pandemic and how that has altered the exchange of information. We also talk about what hospitality-related bills came up, died, and what is still in play. Discover the latest with TLT, lottery, mobile gaming, scheduling, and making cocktails to-go permanent. We will also touch on the pitfalls of a possible Alcohol Task Force, intellectual property protections for restaurants from third-party delivery services who publish menus without consent, and how recycling and environmental protections are creating winners and losers.
