Common School Fund (CSF) Distribution - The board passed a resolution directing the 2009-11 CSF distribution to be 5 percent of the three-year average balance provided the distributable income account has adequate funds to support the amount.  If the distributable income account will not support the 5 percent distribution, the distribution will be the entire amount of the distributable income account.

Informational Agenda
The board heard a report on land sales and pending exchanges on parcels owned by the department in northeast, southwest and central Oregon.
DSL Director Louise Solliday gave a brief overview of the status of the department's bills, 2009-11 budget and a few other bills of interest to the agency. Three bills (HB 2153, HB 2155 and HB 2156) are still in the process, and the DSL budget (SB 5542) should be voted on soon, and sent to the Governor for his signature by the end of the month.
