The primary functions of the Legislative Assembly are to enact new laws and revise existing ones relating to the health, education and general welfare of Oregonians, and to make decisions that keep the state in good economic and environmental condition.  An informal, but highly significant, function is to provide a forum for resolution of group conflicts and expressions of public grievances.  This public/legislative interaction frequently occurs without enactment of any new laws.
