A Note from Carla:
 

Hello Friend,

 

Thank you for visiting my Bill Tracker. I have listed all of the bills that I have signed on to here, so that you can track their progress throughout the session. Here are some other resources that I have compiled just for you: click here for information about how to testify on a bill, and here for information on how a bill gets passed.

 

Each bill that I have sponsored or chief co-sponsored is linked to OLIS​, otherwise known as the Oregon Legislative Information System. OLIS is the public database that keeps track of bills and where they are in the legislative process. You can find all kinds of information on OLIS, including a copy of any bill that has been introduced and accompanying testimony, public meeting times, and a list of bills that each Representative and Senator has sponsored or co-sponsored.

 

Some of these bills are complicated and subject to change through the committee amendment process. If you have a question or comment about what a bill does, please feel free to contact my office.
