​​​​​​Racial and Ethnic Impact Statement

If the Oregon Criminal Justice Commission (CJC) receives a request from a member of the Legislative Assembly from each major political party, they will prepare a racial and ethnic impact statement for a state measure that is related to crime and likely to affect the criminal justice system. The CJC is responsible for preparing an impartial, simple and understandable statement explaining the racial and ethnic impact. The draft statement is filed with the Secretary of State who holds a public hearing to receive testimony. The CJC shall consider the public comment and may file a revised statement. 

No requests have been received in 2023. Sign up for email notices​ to be notified if the CJC receives such a request.
