Oregon Legislature

The Oregon House of Representatives prepares to open an evening session June 10, 2021, in the Oregon Capitol in Salem. Democrats will remain in charge of both chambers of the Legislature when the new session opens Jan. 9 but won’t have a supermajority.

SALEM — Eastern Oregon lawmakers looking at the upcoming legislative session are focusing their efforts on more money for ranchers who lose livestock to wolves, increasing consumer protection and taking on illegal marijuana farms in Southern Oregon.

Rep. Bobby Levy, R-Echo, Rep. Greg Smith, R-Heppner, and Sen. Bill Hansell, R-Athena, told the EO Media Group about their priorities for the 2022 short session that begins Feb. 1 and must end by March 10.
