Statuary Hall Study Commission
Which individuals should represent Oregon in National Statuary Hall?
In August, Governor Kitzhaber established the Statuary Hall Study Commission to determine whether Oregon’s statues in National Statuary Hall in Washington, D.C. of John McLoughlin and Jason Lee should remain, or be replaced by other notable Oregonians. The Statuary Hall Study Commission invites all Oregonians to participate in the recommendation process. Vote Now!
