The House just passed Senate Bill 698, making sure prescription drugs are labeled in languages other than English!!! This will greatly help our API language speakers, who possess the highest rate of limited English proficiency in Oregon (nearly 50%).
Thank you State Representative Teresa Alonso Leon for carrying this bill! Thank you State Representatives who voted yes today (Yes, 49; No, 9). Learn more about the bill at: https://olis.leg.state.or.us/…/2019…/Measures/Overview/SB698
