Steven Gordon "Steve" Rodgers (born 23 June 1951) is a former Australian politician. He was a Labor member of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland from 2001 to 2004, representing the seat of Burdekin.

Rodgers was born in Lismore, New South Wales, and qualified as a boilermaker. He underwent national service from April 1972 to January 1973. In 1997 he was certified as a carpet cleaning technician by the Australian Carpet Cleaning Institute. Rodgers held the posts of President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Burdekin ALP branch before his election to the seat in a surprise win in 2001, defeating former One Nation member Jeff Knuth, running for the City Country Alliance. He was defeated by National Party candidate Rosemary Menkens in 2004; an attempt to regain Burdekin in 2006 was unsuccessful.[1]
