Oregon's 77th Legislative Session

Dear Friends,

As session begins I want to first say that I am honored to be back in the legislature serving you. During this session I want to make it a point that whenever any of you have a concern about our state don’t hesitate to contact me. I take tremendous pride in being accessible, government always works best when it’s closest to the people. If you have any issues with the bureaucracy please don’t hesitate to call. Our office is here to serve you. We can be reached at (503) 986-1727 or you can email me at sen.timknopp@state.or.us.

Want to know what is going on in Salem?

There's a lot of information available online for people who want to track issues of concern during the legislative session.  We’re excited to announce that the State has introduced a comprehensive system will help everyone learn more about upcoming bills, agendas, committees, and measure history all in one place. That system is called Oregon Legislative Information System (OLIS). Click here to explore OLIS

Senate Page Program Begins

The Oregon State Senate offers a great program for students interested in spending a day at the Capitol learning more about the process and state government. Students ages 12 and up can become a page, where they will work on the Senate Floor during session, get a great tour of the Capitol, and spend time during the rest of the day volunteering for me or other legislators. If you’d like more information about the Page Program, please check here online.
