Organizational Camp Rule Hearing
Health Authority (Authority), Public Health Division is proposing to
permanently amend OAR chapter 333, division 30 relating to health and safety at
Organizational Camps. These proposed amendments were developed by a workgroup
consisting of industry and local health department members to update the rules
to properly implement HB 3292 (Oregon Laws 2015, chapter 223), passed during
the 2015 Oregon Legislative Session. HB 3292 allowed the Authority to adopt
rules to allow organizational camp operators to contract the responsibility for
compliance with certain rules to camp user groups.
You are being
invited to review these proposed rules and to comment on them. There is also a list of the significant changes from the previous rules available. If you wish to present oral testimony, a
public hearing will be held in Portland, Oregon at 800 NE Oregon St, Room 1A,
on December 5, 2017 at 2:15 p.m. You
