You won't want to miss the historic moment when the Oregon Senate casts its vote on SB 1000.

Join us first thing in the morning for visibility outside the legislative parking garage where all legislators enter the capitol in the morning. As SB 1000 moves to the Oregon House, it is more important than ever for lawmakers to see that we are there and counting on them to pass this bill before session ends. We'll meet at 7:15 am on the South side of the Capitol building on State Street. Look for the blue SB 1000 t-shirts!

Those wanting to observe the floor vote should arrive at the Capitol Building at 900 Court St. NE in Salem by 9 am and ask for directions at the information kiosk to the 3rd Floor Senate Gallery. Floor session generally takes place between 9 am and 11am, so plan to be at the capitol until noon to witness the vote and celebrate afterward.

Be prepared to listen quietly and respectfully to both moving and difficult speeches by legislators on the floor of the Senate. Senate decorum is similar to that of a courtroom. Applause, cheering, signs, photography, video and audio recording are prohibited in the Senate chamber. SB 1000 tshirts ARE PERMITTED.

Seating is limited. Those arriving after the chamber seats have filled will be directed to overflow seating with a live television feed.

A celebratory reception in the Capitol will be held following floor proceedings.
