OAR v. ORS -- What's the difference?

Administrative rules (OAR) are adopted by state agencies to carry out laws (ORS) enacted by the Oregon Legislature. Rules may be necessary because a law directs an agency to develop rules, to interpret the agency’s governing statutes, prescribe agency procedures or articulate agency policy decisions that have been delegated by the Legislature. Administrative rules carry the same weight as law.
