The 57th Oregon Legislative Assembly convened for its regular session from January 8 to July 6, 1973.[1] There was also a special session from January 24 to February 24, 1974.[2]

Both houses were controlled by the Democratic Party of Oregon. The House speaker was Richard Eymann. Jason Boe was the Senate president;[3] Eymann would serve as Speaker only during the 57th legislature;[4] Boe would continue as President through the 1980 special session.[5]

Republican Tom McCall was governor during the 57th legislature.

The 57th legislature passed sweeping legislation, most notably Senate Bill 100, which established a framework for land use planning in the state.[6]

Bill McCoy, the first African American elected to Oregon's legislature, served his first term in the House during this session. He was later elected to the Oregon Senate.
