After the state government was sued last fall to challenge the residency requirement, a settlement was announced this week after Oregon’s attorney general backed down from enforcing the law.
Lois Anderson of Oregon Right to Life tells AFN the legal settlement also states the state legislature must pass a bill in the 2023 legislative session the rescind the residency requirement.

“This now could open the door for deadly drugs to be mailed into your state,” she warns, “because of wide-open telehealth regulations that were already in place but definitely have been brought in through the COVID pandemic.”
