Oregon’s Provisional Legislature first met formally in 1845 in Oregon City. They were a unicameral body that operated on an uncertain schedule. The present bicameral system—two houses with senators and representatives—was adopted in 1859 upon statehood. Today’s legislators meet annually in Salem and deal with complex matters and busy schedules. This section introduces the members of the Legislature and describes how the Legislature is organized.
