State Senator Rob Wagner (he/him/his) represents Oregon Senate District 19, which includes the communities of Tualatin, Lake Oswego, West Linn, Rivergrove, Durham and Southwest Portland. Senator Wagner currently serves as the Senate Majority Leader and chairs the Senate Committee on Rules and Executive Appointments. He has played a key role in the statewide budgeting process, emphasizing fiscal responsibility and strategic investments for critical programs statewide, while simultaneously listening to the needs of his community.
In his first year in office in 2018, Senator Wagner worked with his colleagues to pass legislation that closed the intimate partner loophole, keeping guns out of the hands of convicted stalkers. Believing that healthcare is a human right, Senator Wagner also supported legislation that requires greater transparency in prescription drug pricing so that those who depend on life-saving medicine will know they are getting a fair deal.
In the 2019 Legislative Session, Senator Wagner put his passion for education to good use by proposing and passing Senate Bill 52, which requires school districts to develop policies to prevent youth suicide. Another of his key legislative accomplishments, Senate Bill 664, requires Holocaust and genocide education. Senate Bill 3 expanded educational opportunity by permitting community colleges to offer applied baccalaureate degree programs.
Senator Wagner has spearheaded legislation with a larger goal of promoting access, equity, and inclusiveness in Oregon schools. You can sign up for more updates on key legislation here.
Come by the office and he'll share his steel string and a John Denver or Beatles tune.
