Welcome to my legislative webpage! It is an honor to represent Senate District 29, which includes Wallowa, Union, Umatilla, Morrow, Gilliam, Sherman, and parts of Wasco Counties. Our district is home to some of Oregon's most beautiful landscapes such as the Wallowa Mountains, Grande Ronde Valley, Blue Mountains, and the Columbia River Basin.
During my time in the Legislature, my office has tackled many of the issues that affect Eastern Oregon. Some of these issues included water related concerns, land use, job creation, and agricultural issues.
As a former Umatilla County Commissioner and now as your State Senator, I understand Eastern Oregon and how important natural resources are to the local economy. As your Senator I have worked for greater access to natural resources for jobs, energy, and a sustainable future.
During the 2020 session, it is our goal to continue to work toward a stronger and more robust Eastern Oregon economy. My office and I are proud to serve the citizens of Senate District 29 as your representation in Salem. I encourage you to contact my office with any questions or concerns you have regarding future legislation.
Senator Bill Hansell
