2014 Legislative Session: Updates and Priorities
The 2014 legislative session ended March 7, with some big wins for Oregon farmland, transportation, and land use. But in the world of land use, winning means working harder. Learn more in our 2014 legislative recap here!
The 2014 Legislature is a short session, meaning legislators will meet only for a few weeks beginning February 3. The session is projected to end on March 9. While short sessions are intended to deal with pressing matters, land use often becomes an issue.
Deadlines are very tight in a short legislative session, so we expect things to move quickly. Our staff is closely monitoring potential bills as they develop, and will keep our supporters informed about opportunities to engage on issues that matter to Oregon's future.
