Legislative Implementation 2021

Rule Timeline Adopted.png

The 2021 Legislative Implementation rules respond to the following new laws:

Proposal for Rulemaking implementing legislative requirements for bias crime exclusions, non-resident RV rates and an outdoor advisory council.

The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is proposing changes to administrative rules that govern state parks, as directed by legislation passed during the 2021 session.

  1. Senate Bill 289: Requires anyone convicted of a bias crime on public property to be prohibited from entering state parks property for up to five years. Proposed rules will establish the process for issuing exclusions.

  2. Senate Bill 794: Adds a 25% surcharge for RV sites occupied by out-of-state residents. Proposed rules will outline which site types are subject to the surcharge.

  3. House Bill 2171: Changes the rule for how members are appointed to the new Outdoor Recreation Advisory Council, which will facilitate efforts of the Oregon Office of Outdoor Recreation to coordinate statewide outdoor recreation policy and priorities.

The Oregon Administrative Rules (OAR) proposed for revision include:

  • Amend: OAR 736-002-0170, 736-010-0020, 736-015-0006, 736-015-0020, 736-015-0040
