Debriefing Oregon's 2024 Legislative Session

Another state legislative session has come and gone already! 2024’s session was a busy one, with lots of committee discussion, public input, and workshopping crammed into just 32 days. There were a number of notable pieces of legislation that Project Access NOW tracked this session, some of which were passed and will become law, and others that didn’t quite make it to the finish line.

Mission Moment

"Project Access NOW's Community Health Worker (CHW) team helped me with my medical appointment, Trimet, and Oregon Health Plan application. I'm pregnant, maybe 6 months. I don't know how long I've been pregnant. I haven't even had a doctor's appointment. The day I went to WIC, a CHW affiliated me with OHP. We got an appointment in April, but then they [were able to change] it to March. I don't speak English and the CHW has been helping me to talk to the clinics."

-Lucy Gomez, Project Access NOW client
