December 8th through 10th, 2014
Since Oregon voters adopted annual sessions in 2010, the Legislature meets for a maximum of 160 days in odd numbered years and 35 days in even numbered years. The period of time in between sessions is called the interim. The Legislature convenes periodically during the interim for special meeting days, called "Legislative Days." Legislative Days happen approximately every eight weeks and last for three days. During Legislative Days, the interim Committees may hold informational hearings on topics that could lead to legislation in the next session or Committees may hear update on implementation of past legislation. Interim Committees use the time provided in Legislative Days to investigate topic areas, hear reports from agencies and Task Forces, and keep current on the subject areas of the Committees. During Legislative Days, the Senate may convene for the purpose of making executive appointments.
Legislative Organizational Days will begin Monday, January 12, 2015, and run through Wednesday January 14, 2015. During Organizational Days, members-elect are sworn in as legislators, bills are introduced, and committees membership is announced. The 78th Legislative Assembly will convene on Monday, February 2 for the regular session.
