Oregon Primate Research Violations

Oregon state Rep. David Gomberg shows a reporter heavily redacted documents he received from the Oregon National Primate Research Center in his office in the Oregon State Capitol in Salem on Tuesday. Rep. Gomberg is behind a bill in the Oregon Legislature calling for greater oversight of the center after two monkeys died when they were put into a scalding cage-washing machine and other safety violations.

SALEM — A state lawmaker is using thousands of pages of redacted documents he sought for more than a year to launch legislation demanding more accountability and oversight of a primate research facility with a long history of complaints.
