The Oath

The Oath of Office on the desk of State Senator Tim Knopp in Senate chambers at the Oregon State Capitol in Salem.

Gov. Tina Kotek spent about two hours listening to Republican and Democratic senators in separate closed-door meetings in the Capitol building Monday, May 22, as the GOP-led walkout that started May 3 continued to stall the Senate.

Kotek entered the Senate majority office to visit with Democrats at noon, on the heels of a meeting she had with Senate Republicans shortly after 11 a.m. Applause rang out from inside the room.
