Legislative Session began Feb. 1

The Oregon Legislature’s “short session” began on Feb. 1. Even-numbered short sessions are the result of a ballot measure passed by voters in 2010. The first was held in 2012. As with any session, short sessions have deadlines. In contrast to sessions in odd-numbered years however, these deadlines come up very quickly.

Important dates:

February 1:  Session begins

February 5:   Work sessions must be posted for bills in their house of origin

February 11:  Last day to hold work session for bills in their house of origin

February 18:  Last day to post work session for bills in 2nd chamber

February 23:  Last day to hold work session for bills in 2nd chamber

March 6:  Constitutional sine die

Rules, Revenue, and Ways & Means Committees are exempt from the above deadlines.

Bills for the Session, although not yet formally introduced, are available on the Oregon State Legislature website.
