January 2020 Update

I hope you had a peaceful Christmas holiday and a safe New Year. I have been incredibly busy in the past few weeks. As you may know, I was appointed to the Oregon Senate to represent Senate District 30. I look forward to the opportunity to represent the largest senate district in Oregon and carry on Sen. Bentz's great work in the legislature. 


Beginning in February, I will be in Salem for the six-week legislative short session. If you have any questions or comments about the bills or issues working through the legislative process, please do not hesitate to contact my office. 

 Upcoming 2020 Short Session

With the legislative short session right around the corner, I want to make sure that you have the opportunity to share your thoughts with my office. I want to know what the priorities of my constituents are so that I am able to best represent you in Salem. Please reach out to my Salem office or my district office to let me know your thoughts and concerns. 

 Pre-Session Constituent Survey

Before we begin the upcoming legislative session, I would like to get an idea of what my constituents are wanting to see from my colleagues in Salem. If you live in Senate District 30, please click here to complete our short survey. 

 Cap & Trade Legislation

As you may be aware, the proponents of the 2019 Cap and Trade legislation have drafted a new version of the program that we will be working on during the short session. As a member of the Senate Environment and Natural Resources committee, I am going to do my absolute best to fight for the interests of all working Oregonians who will be impacted by this kind of legislation. You can click here to watch the first public hearing for the legislative concept which will soon become a new Senate Bill. It will have a different number than last year's 'HB 2020' as it is being introduced in a new legislative session. I believe that there are many things we can do to lessen our carbon footprint, but this Cap and Trade program is certainly not the way to do it. It will do nothing but bankrupt Oregon businesses and families. 

Closing Thoughts

It is my absolute pleasure to serve the constituents of Senate District 30. As always, please feel free to reach out to my office if there is anything we can do to assist you.

Warm regards, 

Rep. Findley Signature

Lynn P. Findley
