Welcome to the Legislative Website of the Oregon Senate Democrats!
On Feb. 1, 2017, the Legislature kicked off the odd-year long session. Senate Democrats put forward a bold, but manageable, plan to protect families and small businesses across Oregon. We are working hard for hard-working Oregonians.
In the 2017 Legislative Session, Oregon Senate Democrats are focusing on Oregon's priorities by:
- Supporting education and workforce training for Oregon's next generation
- Investing in Oregon: Strengthening working families and statewide economic development
- Promoting smart, accountable, efficient government
- Keeping Oregon healthy and safe
In the 2017 Session, we are fighting to give small businesses greater opportunities to grow and thrive. We will fight for legislation that expands access to the capital businesses across the state need to grow and hire new employees. We also are working to provide educational opportunities necessary for a 21st-Century workforce. The Oregon Promise program provides access to community college at a lower cost to students and the Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center is bringing business and education together to train workers and improve industrial competitiveness in the state. Senate Democrats also are working to expand pathways to career technical education for high school students.
We are supporting the health and safety of some of our most vulnerable Oregonians by finding cost effective ways to continue providing health care access to our most vulnerable Oregonians. Senate Democrats are focusing on government accountability and transparency through the new General Government and Accountability Committee, exploring opportunities for greater efficiency, transparency and ease of navigating state government.
