Welcome to my Legislative Website.
Welcome to our district's legislative website. I hope you find the information here useful, and I encourage you to participate in the legislative process. Learn more by reading about the legislative process and how an idea becomes law.
With the recent safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, I wanted to be clear that safety and inclusivity for everyone involved or who wishes to be involved in the legislative process is my top priority. What we know is that until at least April, the legislature will be meeting virtually. Committee hearings and floor sessions will be available, as they always are, on this legislative website. Your testimony, written or verbal, is as important now as it has ever been. I want to encourage you to tune into the legislative process during our floor sessions, committee hearings, or by writing emails, calling our office and providing testimony on legislation that you care about.
I would love to hear from you. Please don't hesitate to send us an email or call us with your concerns, questions, comments or to just say hello!
Senator Deb Patterson
P.S. I will be holding my next Constituent Coffee event on Oct. 2nd at 12pm at French Press (2725 Commercial St. SE Salem) and Oct. 14th at 5:30pm at Primos in Independence (next to Kwik-Stop Market at 810 N. Main St. Independence).
