You are here:
The Oregon State Marine Board. The name of the agency is also how it's governed. By a five-member volunteer Board of recreational boaters. The Oregon Senate confirms board members who are then appointed by the Governor. Members serve a four-year term. A Board member can only serve two consecutive terms. The agency director reports to the Board. Board members help plot the agency's course on budget and policy decisions.
The agency's funding comes from motorboat titles and registrations, and waterway access permits. Other fees support dedicated programs (Outfitter Guides, Charter registrations, and boating safety education).
The agency also receives fuel tax and federal grants to provide services back to boaters. No lottery, general fund tax dollars, or local facility parking fees support the agency or its programs.
