SB 962 (2019) requires the CJC to collect data on U Visa certification requests submitted in Oregon. 2021 is the first year CJC will be collecting this data.
CJC is required to maintain a list of certifying agencies, collect details on the number of certification requests each agency received, and then submit a comprehensive report on the certification process within Oregon to the committees of the Legislative Committee related to the judiciary.
The first year of data covers certification requests received by agencies in 2020. All certifying agencies, even those who received no certification requests, are required to submit data to the CJC. Agencies will submit the data using a form that takes about six minutes, on average, to complete. The data collected in the form include number of requests received, denied, pending, and reason for denial.
