From the Oregonian Sunday:

(Oregon Republican Rep. Dallas) Heard and five other elected officials from Washington, Idaho and Nevada were on a "fact-finding mission," Heard said. Last year's Umpqua Community College shooting occurred in Heard's district, and Heard said he wanted to prevent a similar outbreak of violence. The out-of-state legislators were Reps. Graham Hunt and Matt Shea of Washington; Reps. Judy Boyle, Heather Scott and Sage Dixon of Idaho; and Rep. Michelle Fiore of Nevada, who joined by telephone. "He had called me and indicated he was heading that direction, and I indicated that was inappropriate," Bentz said of Heard. "I think it's fair to say I was not enthusiastic about the idea."
