Welcome to the O.I.L. Senate!

 

The Senate is the smaller, more intimate, more formal house of the legislative branch.

 

The President Pro Tempore and the Deputy President Tempore are the elected leaders that preside over the Senate, but the Lt. Governor is the true President of the Senate. The Floor Leaders are the highest ranking appointed offices in the Senate.

 

As you browse you will find resources that will help you prepare for session. Officer appointments, Orders of the Day, Committee Assignments, etc. will be posted prior to and during session.

 

If you see errors, need any assistance, or have any concerns, please let me know. I’m always available to answer your questions at crawfordwil17@gmail.com.
