DSL Laws & Rules

Administrative rules are used by state agencies to implement or interpret the law, or to describe the agency's procedures (ORS 183.310(9)). State agencies may permanently or temporarily adopt, amend, repeal, suspend, or renumber rules. DSL encourages public involvement in the rulemaking process. Learn more about submitting public comments here.

The following list contains statutes and rules related to DSL's operations. All DSL rules are in Chapter 141, and the South Slough Reserve rules are located in Chapter 142. You can filter the list by entering a keyword or rule number in the search box. You can also find laws and rules sorted by topic from the various program rule pages.

Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS) are found on the Oregon State Legislature website. Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) are published on the Secretary of State's website.
