About the Author

Paul Hanneman was one of only several legislators to serve 26 consecutive years in the Oregon House of Representatives since statehood in 1859.

He was the original author of the "Bottle Bill" and chair of an Interim Committee that brought this concept of recycling to Oregon. The final version of the "Oregon Beach Bill" was largely due to his work as chair of the House Interim Subcommittee on Highways, and the state's first Forest Practices Act was enacted through his chairmanship of the House Natural Resources Committee. "Landmark Legislation" and "First In The Nation" are terms frequently used to describe these laws.

Over the past 65 years, Hanneman served on more than 40 local, state and federal committees, boards and commissions. He was twice named by his peers as one of "the most effective" legislators in northwest Oregon. He was selected as "One of Five Outstanding Young Men of Oregon" in 1968.

By trade or profession he has been a commercial artist, boatbuilder, Coast Guard licensed guide, and commercial fisherman.

Paul and Sandy live in Tillamook County near Pacific City.
