SALEM, Oregon: The Rules Committee of the Oregon State Senate will consider whether to refer a measure to the ballot that would create annual legislative sessions in the state.[1]

Oregon is one of five states whose state legislators only meet every other year, with occasional special sessions in the alternate years.

Oregonians rejected an annual-sessions ballot measure in 1990. The state senate has considered similar measures four times since then, but so far, to no avail.
