Oregon State Legislature Environmental and Natural Resources Bill Tracking

The Oregon State Bar’s Public Affairs department is tracking environmental and natural resources bills that may be of interest to you or your clients. The bills tracked may not include each and every bill of interest during the legislative season, and the status of bills can change quickly during the legislative season, but we hope that you will find this resource useful.

Please visit the bill tracking webpage that includes links to the bills, summaries, and status updates: https://www.osbar.org/pubaffairs/reports/BarGroupBillSummary.html?bargroupid=813.
