OTA Dispatch Issue 1, 2022

18 Oregon Trucking Associations, Inc. Oregon Truck Dispatch 2022 Oregon Legislative Session Update Prepared by Oxley & Associates Oregon’s “short” legislative session may already be over by the time this magazine arrives in your mailbox. While sessions are shorter in the even years, that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of agenda items for OTA to track and for members to be aware of. While this session remains mostly virtual, Oregon’s capitol building is looking very different this year. Oregon joined 33 other states in requiring visitors, legislators, and staff to pass through metal detectors. Ongoing construction to upgrade and improve the safety in the building has led to the closure of hearing rooms, the cafeteria, and garage.
