Measure 71: The Oregon Constitution currently requires legislative sessions to be held biennially. Current law permits the Legislative Assembly to meet without a limit on the length of session. This measure requires the Legislative Assembly to meet each year, limits regular sessions to 160 calendar days in odd-numbered years and 35 calendar days in evennumbered years, and allows regular session to be extended by five days with an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members of each chamber. | Info on Measure 71
