Appointed to complete the term of Rep. Fred Girod when he moved to the Senate in February 2008, Rep. Sprenger won election that November to her first full term. In their endorsement of her 2010 re-election, the editorial staff of the Statesman-Journal described her as one who epitomizes the concept of the citizen-legislator. She is passionate about her district and even as a member of the minority caucus during the last session, she ably represented the people of the largely rural district (the largest city is Lebanon) by constantly reminding her urban counterparts how legislation would affect residents of rural Oregon.
For the 2013 session, Rep. Sprenger's committee assignments focused her attention with laser-like precision on education. She served as Vice-Chair of the Education Committee and sat on the Joint Ways and Means Subcommittee on Education.
For the 78th Legislative Assembly (2015-16) Rep. Sprenger continued as Vice-Chair of the House Committee on Education and joined freshman Marion County Republican Rep. Bill Post on the Judiciary Committee.
While she remains on both the House Education and House Judiciary committees for the 79th Legislative Assembly, she joins two additional committees: House Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources, on which she serves as Vice-Chair, and House Committee on Conduct
