The Oregon State Legislature maintains a strong tradition of open and transparent government. We at the Legislature make every attempt to provide you with clear and concise access to the information you need, while maintaining the appropriate level of security and confidentiality.

Oregon Revised Statutes 192.314 (1) provides that “Every person has a right to inspect any public record of a public body in this state, except as otherwise expressly provided by ORS 192.338, 192.345 and 192.355.”  

To submit a public records request, you may do either of the following:

  1. Complete and mail the Public Records Request Information Form to Legislative Counsel, 900 Court St. NE, S-101 Salem, OR 97301.
  2. Send an email to describing the office(s) to which the request is directed and the requested records in detail along with the dates/time period the records were created. ​To aid in the timely facilitation of the requested records and to help ensure our search yields relevant records, consider including specific search terms in yo​ur request. A representative of Legislative Counsel will contact you if clarification is needed on your request. Also include:
               a.  Name
               b.  Address

               d.  Telephone Number

Please note that the requester may be charged the actual cost associated with gathering and preparing the public records for disclosure.
