 Posted: 9:40 AM December 10, 2012

SALEM, Ore. — Gov. John Kitzhaber says he's calling the Oregon Legislature into session next week.

He has scheduled a news conference late Monday morning to discuss his plans for a special session.

The Legislature is due to meet in its regular annual session beginning Jan. 14.

Kitzhaber said in a brief statement the special session will convene next Monday.

Spokesman Tim Raphael wouldn't go beyond that, refusing to say what Kitzhaber wants lawmakers to deal with.
