Oregon House Will Again Explore College Sports Spectator Legislation

There will be another vote in the House on a measure that would bring about “equity-focused regulations” to regulate the conduct of college sports fans at public colleges in Oregon.

House Bill 2472-2 would compel schools to conduct an annual survey of students and athletes and submit a report to the state legislature detailing the results.

On Tuesday (April 4, 2023), the House Committee on Higher Education voted 6-3 to advance the measure to the House floor with a do-pass recommendation and refer it to the Joint Committee on Ways and Meansβ€”five Democrats, one Republican, and three Republicans were in support, all voting roughly along party lines.
