Proposed Rulemaking

Rules under consideration

Description

DSL is beginning the process of amending these rules and differentiating between trust and non-trust easements.  The State Land Board authorized DSL to initiate rulemaking on June 22, 2011.  The purpose of this rulemaking effort is to: 

•​ ​​​​Accommodate statutory (including HB 2460), and rule changes (including the adoption of OAR 141-145) that have occurred in the past several years,
• Update the general provisions section to reflect the current practices of DSL,
• Complete rule language changes recommended by the Oregon Department of Justice,
• Review and update the administrative procedures for reviewing and issuing easements, and
•  Review and update the compensation formulas for issuing easements. ​

DSL is in the process of selecting RAC members, and plans to begin the formal rulemaking process by the end of 2017.​

Description

SB 3 repealed an earlier moratorium on placer mining and replaced it with a prohibition on certain types of operations in certain areas (ESH/lamprey). The bill also establishes a permit program at DEQ. DSL will continue to issue GA's for non-motorized recreational placer mining and IP's for large projects in non-ESH waters. DSL plans to begin the formal rulemaking process to update the GA by the end of 2017. DSL does not intend to convene a RAC because the rulemaking will only codify the statutory requirements of SB 3.​
