DSL is conducting rulemaking to guide the Oregon Ocean Science Trust (OOST) on working with private, nonprofit organizations for fundraising purposes, resulting from SB 753 (2019) (ORS 196.570). DSL filed a temporary rule effective March 1, 2020. The temp rule expires on August 27, 2020, and can be found on the Secretary of State’s webpage here.
Though the OOST is a separate entity from the Department of State Lands, our agency provides administrative support to the seven-member Trust, including rulemaking activities.
DSL held two Rule Advisory Committee (RAC) meetings:
RAC Meeting 1
April 23, 2020, 9 AM - 12 PM
RAC Meeting 2
May 8, 2020, 9 AM - 11 AM
One public hearing will be held remotely by Zoom on June 16, 2020, from 4:30-5:30 PM.
