If there's a bill you're hearing about either in the news or elsewhere, finding it is easy.  The Legislature has a great tool available to you, within the legislative website at  From the homepage, you can access bill information by clicking on the OLIS icon (that stands for Oregon Legislative Information System in the menu bar (see image below). 

Once inside OLIS, you'll see a summary of the day's events, including hearings, floor sessions and other Capitol events.  You'll also see a menu at the top right with an icon for "Bills", which is a great place to start.

You can search for bills either by the bill number, or if you don't know the bill #, you can search by keyword text or by the bill's sponsor. Both House and Senate bills can be searched and by hovering over the results, you can read the bill summary, to help to narrow it down to what you're looking for.

Senator James I. Manning Jr represents North Eugene, West Eugene, Santa Clara, and Junction City in the Oregon State Senate.

He is currently serving in his Second Legislative session.
