Giving Families The Tools They Need To Get Ahead
"When families can save - buying a home, creating a stock portfolio or paying down debt – they are stronger. We can help families get ahead by keeping an eye on the ball. Reducing the cost of health care is one way. College savings plans are another. These two areas have become my passions." -- Mark Hass
A Champion For Vets
In the February 2008 Legislative session, Senator Hass wrote the new law that provides a free college education to an Oregon University for widows and orphans of fallen GIs.
"Senator Hass stood up for veterans when it counted. He quietly did the heavy lifting for this new law that will dramatically change lives of war orphans and widows for the better."
