News from Oregon that Governor Kate Brown is on board with a bill which would require invasive home visits by state employees to all households with newborns has sent shockwaves across the nation.

While the proposed legislation, known as Senate Bill 526, remains in a nascent form with very few published details, it has nonetheless generated great excitement among progressive statists while sending chills down the spines of parents and families who fear increased government interference in their private lives.

The controversial bill directs the Oregon Health Authority “to study home visiting by licensed health care providers.” It has also been given “emergency” status, meaning that action must be taken before the end of this year.

The “emergency” designation has an oddly ominous tone, stating that the measure is “necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety,” so “an emergency is declared to exist.”

This doesn't violate the US Constitution. It violates the US Constitution willfully and wildly! Why the government of OR thinks they will get away with this is something I cannot understand. Calabretta v. Floyd (https://hslda.org/content/Legal/state/ca/19950223Calabretta/default.asp), a unanimous decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (OR is in the Ninth Circuit) pretty much foredooms this law if passed.
