The board also will consider approving administrative rules governing Land Board meetings and the agency’s general administration, and the Oregon Natural Heritage Program.
The Land Board will consider adoption of resolutions relating to the public’s right to use waterways and the federal process for siting liquefied natural gas facilities. In addition, the board will hear a report on the Ocean Policy Advisory Council’s recommendations for marine reserves and consider support for the process outlined in the Governor’s Executive Order 08-07.
The board also will hear an informational report on the budget for Common School Fund forestlands.
Outgoing board members Secretary of State Bill Bradbury and State Treasurer Randall Edwards will be recognized at the end of the meeting for their service –nine and eight years, respectively – on the Land Board.
The meeting will be held at the State Lands Building, 775 Summer St., NE in Salem, beginning at 10:00 a.m., in a facility that is accessible for persons with disabilities.

The State Land Board consists of Governor Theodore Kulongoski, Secretary of State Bill Bradbury and State Treasurer Randall Edwards. The Department of State Lands administers diverse natural and fiscal resources. Many of the resources generate revenue for the Common School Fund, such as state-owned rangelands and timberlands, waterway leases, estates for which no will or heirs exist, and unclaimed property. Twice a year, the agency distributes fund investment earnings to support K-12 public schools. The agency also administers Oregon’s Removal-Fill Law, which requires people removing or filling certain amounts of material in waters of the state to obtain a permit.
