OR "Gov has broad power to battle flu"

Governors across the U.S. have been meeting with health officials and feds to decide how to handle the coming swine flu crisis, as they'd have us believe. I've been posting here for months now about mandatory vaccinations; and while Oregon's governor Ted Kulongoski says he won't mandate vaccinations . . . we'll just have to wait and see. Here's an article on the meeting: Governor has broad power to battle flu;If faced with a serious outbreak, he could declare an emergency. About the power of the governor to implement Big Brother/The State:
“The governor’s powers in an emergency are defined broadly to give him maximum flexibility,” said Kelly Skye, a member of his legal staff.

Including calling in the National Guard and "suspend rules and regulations" if they're in the way. He can also "order food rationing or fix prices of goods such as gasoline to prevent gouging,"

As to enforced vaccinations, the Governor, as mentioned earlier, doesn't plan on doing that, (he says) but it's an option. And if the fear factor isn't working for some of us, guilt might. Refuse to be vaccinated? Or quarantined? Just need a good talking to:
Officials first would ask someone to agree to a voluntary quarantine, and most people do cooperate when confronted with the prospect of being responsible for spread of a disease that can cause serious illness and even death,
