During each long session, as the budget for the next two years is being developed, legislators who are members of the Joint Committee on Ways and Means participate in town halls in locations around the state. They always come after the Co-Chairs of Ways and Means release their initial budget, which builds off of the Governor’s Recommended Budget received at the beginning of February. The Co-Chairs’ budget should be out in the last half of March.
These hearings are a chance for Oregonians in those locations to come before the committee and provide two minutes of public testimony on their budget priorities without having to travel to Salem.
Saturday, April 8 (10:00am – 12:00pm) – Portland
- Location: Portland Community College – PAC Auditorium, Sylvania Campus
- 12000 SW 49th Ave, Portland, OR 97219
Rep. Ricki Ruiz (D, HD50) will also be attending this event.
Registration is required to testify. Click here to view a livestream of the hearing. These in-person hearings will be followed by a zoom hearing open to everyone in the state on May 3.
