Oregon capitol

Oregon’s 2024 legislative session concluded with three days to spare. Nevertheless, the five-week frenzy of lawmaking produced dozens of legal changes that affect Oregon businesses.  The Legislature also adopted sweeping legislation on drug and criminal justice policy, dedicated hundreds of millions of dollars to housing affordability programs and revamped Oregon’ campaign finance system.

It was, in other words, a highly consequential session despite its brevity.

OBI’s government affairs team worked tirelessly to support bills that promised to help Oregon’s employers and to mitigate the harm done by bills that threatened to erode the state’s business climate.

OBI’s 2024 End of Session Report, which you can view and download below, discusses the session’s highlights and describes the fates of dozens of bills that mattered most to Oregon’s employers.
