Financial Estimate Committee (FEC) Meeting Schedule

The FEC committee will meet to draft financial estimate statements for all viable ballot measures. Once the statements have been drafted the Secretary of State’s office will schedule hearings to receive public comments on the draft financial impact statements. If a statement receives comments during the public hearing, the FEC must meet to review those comments and consider revisions to the statement. Interested parties may observe the FEC committee deliberations live via the Oregon State legislative website.

After the meeting video of the meeting will be available on the Secretary of State’s website.
