|Oregon Committee Assignments, 2015|
|• Health Care, Vice-Chair|
|• Higher Education, Innovation and Workforce Development|

Hayden's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
Private Sector Solutions Needed in Health Care
- Excerpt: "My wife and I are expecting our fifth child this July. We have worked hard and planned ahead. But, like millions of Americans, we too recently received a letter saying that because of government intervention that insurance policy may end. What I want to know is does the government really know what’s better for my family than we do? Again, government is not the solution."
Market-Based Job Creation
- Excerpt: "I’ve found that my business ventures have done the best at both turning a profit and benefiting our employees when we did not have to spend significant time and other resources navigating through government paperwork and policies. Even the best intentions behind regulations often don’t result in the greater good. This is most obvious in rural areas like ours where legislation and regulations created with ostensibly good intentions have resulted in dramatically reduced timber harvests and thus job losses."
Individual Freedom and Rights
- Excerpt: "We’re also very familiar with government overreach in our area when it comes to the right to bear arms. Thankfully, this right has not been taken away. But the pressure for the government to limit our 2nd Amendment rights is strong, and as your State Representative I will fight to block efforts by politicians in Portland and Eugene from taking away our gun rights."
Educating for our Future
- Excerpt: "And as parents with kids in school, Julie and I understand the challenges that our schools face to provide a quality education. I want to see a serious effort to reduce class sizes and provide every student the opportunity and resources they need to read by the time they are in third grade."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
Hayden and his wife, Julie, have five children.
