Opening Day

The Oregon House convenes at 8:30 a.m. The Oregon Senate convenes at 9:45 a.m. Both chambers will start by organizing - officially electing leadership and setting rules.

Once that's done, they'll move to joint session for the inauguration of Governor Ted Kulongoski at about 10:45 a.m. (Inauguration schedule.)
