2020 LEGISLATURE: As the Oregonian Legislature opened its 2020 session Monday, bills under consideration included a proposal to ban discrimination based on hairstyles and require stores to accept cash (House Bill 4107).

KYLEE DIXON: A Wilsonville girl was returned to her mother’s custody Monday, ending a months-long dispute between the state Department of Human Services and Christina Dixon over how to treat 13-year-old Kylee Dixon’s cancer diagnosis. Christina Dixon had wanted to treat her daughter with CBD oil instead of having the tumor surgically removed. Kylee had a successful surgery last month.
