Cover Oregon Ejects Reporters from Closed-Door Meeting with Legislators

Cover Oregon
Gov. Kitzhaber announced Tuesday that open enrollment will be extended through April but the exchange is reeling from his announcement last week that top officials would lose their jobs. Cover Oregon staff blocked reporters from a legislative meeting, in possible violation of the Public Meetings Law.

Cover Oregon kicked The Lund Report out of a meeting with top legislators at its Durham headquarters Tuesday, and barred two Statesman-Journal reporters at the door from entering the office.

The reporter from The Lund Report was escorted out of the office by Cover Oregon marketing director Amy Fauver and spokeswoman Ariane Holm, and was told it was a private meeting.
