Item 10 Sage-Grouse Rulemaking Hearing
The commission will hold a hearing and consider adoption of amendments to OAR 660-023-115, Exhibit D. The proposed revisions will modify the existing human disturbance baseline values for sage grouse core areas. The original baseline values were determined using a variety of datasets that were the best available in 2013-2014. One of these datasets delineating electric transmission lines was a proprietary dataset that is now preventing the department from creating a fully transparent central registry as directed in Section 15 of OAR 660-023-115 (the Sage Grouse Rule). This rulemaking is intended to modify the baseline values to reflect the use of a replacement transmission line dataset that is state-owned and maintained. No other amendments to the Sage Grouse Rule, the baseline values, or the supporting datasets are requested.

Item 11 Request to Appeal
