PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The chairman of the Oregon Republican Party has filed paperwork to launch a recall against Democratic Gov. Kate Brown, citing some of the laws passed in the 2019 legislative session.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Chairman Bill Currier in the Monday filing also pointed to Brown's announcement the day after lawmakers went home last month that if necessary, she would use executive powers to implement climate change policies similar to the plan defeated at the Capitol this year.
