In June 2021, Oregon become the third state to legalize the Recompose process.

Recompose partnered with Representative Pam Marsh from House District 5 (Southern Jackson County) to bring forward HB 2574. Thanks to the over 100 Oregonians who wrote in with letters of support, HB 2574 passed successfully out of the House and the Senate with near-unanimous support. It was signed into law by Governor Kate Brown on July 15, 2021.

Thank you to all our supporters in Oregon for backing this bill. Thanks also to lead sponsor Representative Pam Marsh and Representative Brian Clem for ushering this bill through the legislature.
