Rules, Conduct & Elections Activities

​Senate Rules passed by the supermajority are designed to give the Democrat leadership 100% control of the legislature.  No bill can even have a hearing without the approval of the Senate President.  No bill can be passed without the approval of the Senate President who controls agendas, committees and Floor votes.   Read the rules yourself which are posted under the Secretary of the Senate on this set of links. The Oregon State Senate is niether a democracy or republic after the elections of the Senate President.  An election filled with side deals.  This webpage link is designed to keep citizens apprised of rules, election, and conduct related activities in the Oregon State Senate.

Noteworthy to citizens, this Session will redistrict the Senate districts for which I expect to be placed outside Sd-12 by June with the plan confirmed by the courts by September 2021.  The supermajority Democrats control the redistricting process. 

Lastly, the rules passed by the supermajority on January 11, 2021 block citizens from the Oregon State Capitol.  Bills blocked by citizen input last Session will be passed by the supermajority with little opposition.  Any claims that emails or telephone calls influence the voting, or are even read by members, is simply false 100% of the process is controlled.  Face to face citizen input is the only real means of influencing the establishment, both Democrat and Republican legislators.  None-the-less, you are encouraged to email input to both our office and to the committees.  The links are on this website.
