Just because the City of Portland adopted their budget doesn't mean local budget fights are over.

Multnomah County is scheduled to adopt their budget this Tuesday. This includes a $6.4 million increase to the Sheriff's Office.
Amendments were proposed thanks to mobilizing from Black & Pink Portland

This includes cuts to the DA office, defunding SROs, closing jail dorms, and divestment from Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD)

Watch meeting to discuss amendments here: https://multnomah.granicus.com/player/clip/2073?view_id=3
