If a bill has not been traced, you
can examine the legislative committee minutes by using the
bill's measure history from the
Oregon State Legislature's website. The measure histories provide a chronological summary of activity relating to the bill as it went through the legislative process.
When examining a bill's measure history, pay attention to:
The committees that dealt with the bill; and
- The dates public hearings and work sessions were held on the bill.
In most cases there will be a large number of measure histories in bill number order on the same Web page. You may find it convenient to copy and paste your bill's measure history into a text document before returning to the legislative minutes section of this website.
request a tracing
reference archivist. Research time is
billed (see fees). While bills vary in size and complexity, the
typical bill tracing takes about one hour to compile.
