Image of the Senate ChamberOregon State Senate

The Oregon Senate consists of 30 members who are elected to serve for four-year terms. Each senator represents a district containing about 127,700 citizens. These district lines are redrawn every ten years.

 

 
Oregon’s Senate Chamber features paneling and furniture of matched black walnut. Alternating designs of wheat and salmon, symbolizing Oregon’s agricultural and fishing industries are woven into the carpeting. The mural behind the Senate President’s desk is by Frank H. Schwarz and shows a street scene in Salem when news of Oregon’s admission to the Union was received in 1859.

Above the galleries in both the House and Senate Chambers are friezes inscribed with the names of 158 people prominent in the history and development of Oregon.
