SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon lawmakers are convening in Salem for a special legislative session to extend certain tax breaks.

Last month Gov. Kate Brown announced she would bring legislators back to the Capitol after she supported a controversial measure passed by her fellow Democrats in the Legislature to keep Oregon from losing more than $200 million as a result of President Donald Trump's federal tax overhaul.

The goal of the special session, which begins Monday, will be to expand the list of small businesses eligible for preferential treatment under Oregon's state tax laws.

Brown has said she wanted to limit the session to one day but it's unclear how long lawmakers may meet. Republicans have objected to the special session, saying it was unneeded.
