Welcome to the web site of Alan Bates, Oregon State Senator
Watching Out for Your Health
Website Links to Helpful Health Benefit/Assistance Programs
Let me first take this opportunity to thank you for visiting my website. It is my hope to make this site as user-friendly as possible. Obviously, to attain that goal, I need your feedback. Please contact my staff and let them know if you find the information included here to be helpful along with any other information you may desire.
Many of you have sent letters, emails, or called me regarding specific issues such as general state budget issues, care for the elderly and disabled, medical malpractice, education, mental health funding, and local preemption. Because we are able to track legislation by catch phrases, we have taken the liberty to set up specific files of bills based on subject. Although this is not a comprehensive list, it is my goal to cover as many categories as possible on my site. If there is a category that you would like to have tracked, please email our office and let us know.
I have also included links to other websites that you may find helpful. In addition to these important links, we will also bring you articles and information from various organizations that can add to your depth of knowledge of state government.
Dr. Alan Bates
