Administrative Rules

 Content Editor

Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) are the directives, standards, and regulations that help state government put state law into practice. Below, you can find information about the rules guiding our work at Oregon State Treasury, including ways to get involved with the process to propose and adopt new or amended rules.

Rulemaking Hearings Scheduled


Senate Bill 454 (2019), Chapter 678, Oregon Laws 2019, transfers the duties, functions and powers of the Department of State Lands to and is vested in the State Treasurer as they relate to: The Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act in ORS 98.302 to 98.436 and 98.992; Administration of estates as provided in ORS 112.055, 113.085, 113.235, 113.238, 113.242 and 114.505 to 114.560 and the duties of an estate administrator as personal representative of an estate under ORS chapters 111, 112, 113, 114, 115, 116 and 117; and Property escheated to the state and held under ORS 112.055, 113.085, 113.242, 114.555, 116.193, 116.203, 116.253, 652.405, 708A.430 and 723.466, or any other source of escheated property or funds. The proposed rules contained in this notice completes the transfer of duties, functions and powers under the programs to the State Treasurer by proposing to permanently adopt the same: (a) method of property transfer requirements; (b) administrative processes and requirements; and (c) reporting requirements. The rules proposed under the notice also identify the Office of Administrative Hearings as the body that conducts contested case hearings, rather than the Director of the Department of State Lands, as required under HB 454 (2019).
