SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Democrats in Oregon tried to pressure boycotting Republican lawmakers back to the Statehouse by emphasizing bills that would help their constituents.

But Republican senators stayed away Wednesday for a third day to block a bill on climate change they say should go before voters.

Meanwhile, a Senate committee passed an amendment to bill 1510 to ensure that campaign contributions cannot be solicited or used to pay fines or legal expenses incurred from being AWOL from the Legislature. 

The approval moves the bill onto a stack of other legislation that is frozen because of the walkout.
