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.

According to Oregon Revised Statutes 192.420, “every person has a right to inspect any public record of a public body in this state, except as otherwise expressly provided by ORS 192.501 to 192.505.” 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 requested records in detail along with the dates/time period the records were created. Also include:
               a.  Name
               b.  Address
               c.  Email 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. An estimate of charges will be provided before costs are incurred. If you have any questions or need additional information, please call Legislative Counsel at 503-986-1243.
