Summary of 2017 Legislative Session

July 7, 2017
The 79th Oregon Legislative Assembly has adjourned. By many measures, this was a difficult session for lawmakers, who were faced with a more than $1 billion budget shortfall and major packages of policy to negotiate, including a multi-billion dollar transportation package and a Medicaid package to ensure thousands of Oregonians are able to stay on the Oregon Health Plan.
