Land Board consists of Governor John Kitzhaber, Secretary of State Kate Brown
and State Treasurer Ted Wheeler. 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.
