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 election 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, the 2021 Session set new Districts based on Democrat Caucus wishes then confirmed by the Democrat controlled Courts.  The present online maps have not been updated.    

Lastly, the rules passed by the supermajority on January 11, 2021 blocked citizens from the Oregon State Capitol.  Democrat and socialsit Repulican member bills approved for passage by the Senate President (D) but lacking any meaningful citizen input will be passed in the 2022 Short Session 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 as 100% of the process is controlled by one person,  Face to face citizen input is the only real means of influencing the establishment, both registered Democrat and Republican legislators.  None-the-less, you are encouraged to email input to both our office and to the committees along with other legisaltors.  The links are on this website.
