Tips to Navigate Session

Tips to Navigate Session, brought to you by Oregonians for Food & Shelter

Bills the legislature will be considering are posted to the Oregon Legislature website at https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/.

  • Once you get to the website, you will see the Bill icon on the top right of the page.
  • Bills can be searched by Bill Number, Bill Text or Bill Sponsor.
  • Text of each Bill can be found on Bill Overview page under the Text tab.
  • Once you find Bill text, this handy guide (https://bit.ly/2NCGxrD) will help you understand the layout and information contained in the Bill text.

The Oregon Legislative Assembly has established a process to accept remote verbal public testimony on bills by video or phone during this time, in addition to written public testimony.

Written testimony will be accepted two ways, through the OLIS system and by mail.

You must register in advance to provide verbal testimony during a committee or subcommittee meeting. Registration closes at the start of the meeting.

Complete instructions on how to submit written comments and provide verbal testimony can be found here.
