Executive Committee (Oregon Country)

Seal of the Provisional Government

An Executive Committee was the title of a three-person committee which served as the executive Branch of the Provisional Government of Oregon in the disputed Oregon Country. This arrangement was announced on July 5, 1843, after three months of study by the Provisional Legislature at Champoeg. Two different Executive Committees served until the system was abandoned in 1845 in favor of an elected single chief executive.

Powers

The Executive Committee was empowered to grant reprieves and pardons, recommend legislation, and call out the militia.
