  • Oregon State Legislature:

    From the website: The State of Oregon has a Citizen Legislature consisting of the Senate, whose 30 members are elected to serve four-year terms, and the House of Representatives, which has 60 members elected for two-year terms. The assembly convenes every two years in regular session on the second Monday in January during odd-numbered years, a date set by statute. Oregon Constitution does not specify a limitation on session length, however most sessions last approximately six months. During the interim, legislators serve on interim committees and task forces that study issues likely to be faced during the next legislative session.

     

  • The Oregon Progress Board is an independent state planning and oversight agency. Created by the Legislature in 1989, the Board is responsible for monitoring the state’s 20-year strategic vision, Oregon Shines. The 12-member panel, chaired by the governor, is made up of citizen leaders and reflects the state’s social, ethnic and political diversity.
