Oregon's capitol building against blue sky.

Exhibit Opening– August 24

“Oregon’s Landmark Legislation” will be on display from August 24- October 22. Oregon has repeatedly led the nation in creating, revising, and implementing laws shaping the quality of life of its citizens. While Oregon’s innovations have evoked controversy, they have charted the course for other states and nations.

This traveling exhibit highlights groundbreaking legislation that Oregon has passed since Statehood either by Politician, Legislative Action, or Public Initiative.

Arranged chronologically, the panels present legislation that focuses on environmental, social, and land use issues, including the Bottle Bill, the Oregon Forest Practices Act and the Aerosol Spray Ban.
