Ethan Hampton

ASOSU Representative

This is the main page for all of my activity as a Representative for the Associated Students of Oregon State University House of Representatives in the 13th ASOSU Congress. I strive to improve life for all Oregon State students, and encourage active participation in the legislative process.

Office Hours

Winter Term 2022, my office hours are Wednesdays from 1-2 in SEC 250. If you would like to meet remotely, that can also be accommodated. Please contact me via my ASOSU email at [email protected]

Legislative Priorities

  • Equitable access to student resources
  • Safe learning environment - focusing specifically on COVID-19
  • The Climate Crisis
  • Other issues YOU want me to represent (again, I encourage you to come to my office hours!)


This section lists my votes on legislation to provide additional transparency into my actions as well as other news from my work in government.

  • Memo Regarding ASOSU Decision Package #4 FY2023

    18-Jan-2022 | 56 Words | 1 min read
    This page contains the most up to date version of the memo I put out which explains why I am against the advocate model for professional staff within ASOSU. This memo was triggered by the changes made by decision package #4 for ASOSU within the FY2023 fee cycle process. Latest version of memo (updated 19-Jan-2022): ASOSU-DP4-Memo-V3.pdf
  • Vote date: 17-Nov-2021 I voted “Abstain” on this bill because of my role on the 2022 Elections Committee. Technically, this bill just established the convention and didn’t propose a ballot measure, however I still felt abstaining was my best position here. This bill was passed by foregoing a second reading, a choice I disagree with given what I believe to be a false time sensitivity. Additionally, we did not have the full senate-amended version of the bill in our hands.
  • Vote date: 17-Nov-2021 I voted “Aye” on this bill. This is a stop-gap measure to pay more members of the student government for more time. This will dramatically increase their time to work and allows for the fee process to proceed smoothly. This will be voted on again for future years in the form of a fee decision package later this school year. Version voted on: HB-13.03.pdf
  • SR-81.01 - SafeWalk Resolution - Abstain

    10-Nov-2021 | 61 Words | 1 min read
    Vote date: 10-Nov-2021 I voted “Abstain” on this resolution because although I support SafeWalk as a service, I don’t have enough information about the impact it will have on the incidental fee to make a decision either way. If it comes down to SafeWalk vs some other priority, I don’t want to be bound to a decision. Version voted on: SR-81.01.pdf
  • Vote date: 03-Nov-2021 These bills essentially rewrite all of the statutes and give us a clean slate to work with. Previously record-keeping in ASOSU has been below par and this allows us to start fresh. The Student Government Committee has worked on compiling all the “lost statutes” and creating this document. Due to origination clauses, we had to vote on two separate versions of this bill in order to pass the whole thing.
  • SB-81.02 - Better Standing Rules Bill - Aye

    29-Sep-2021 | 36 Words | 1 min read
    Vote date: 29-Sep-2021 I voted “Aye” on this bill because I believe that it encourages the House to meet over the summer. Simple bill, and a great candidate for my first vote! Version voted on: SB-81.02.pdf
