Happy New Year, and welcome to 2021! Today, the Oregon Legislature is meeting to officially swear in the newly-elected members in both the House and Senate, and First Read pre-session filed legislation. Currently, there about 1,000 bills in the House Chamber and around 800 bills in the Senate Chamber. Typically, the Governor also gives a speech, but that is now to be delivered virtually at a later date. Next Tuesday, the legislature will officially begin the 81st Legislative Session, which is when committees will formally meet to discuss any bills that have been referred to any given committee. Throughout this session, I will keep you updated with weekly newsletters. As always, please feel free to reach out to me anytime.
