The ORS is published every two years. Each edition incorporates all laws, and changes to laws, enacted by the Legislative Assembly through the odd-numbered year regular session referenced in the volume titles for that edition.
The 2011 Edition does not include changes to the law enacted during the 2012 regular session of the Seventy-sixth Legislative Assembly. Changes to the law by the 2012 regular session will be reflected in the 2013 Edition of Oregon Revised Statutes. Because the Acts of the 2012 regular session are not incorporated into the 2011 Edition, examine both the 2011 Edition and the 2012 Oregon Laws for the most up-to-date version of the law. See the Instructions for Using the 2012 Oregon Laws for details on how to determine the current state of the law.
Each ORS chapter below that is affected by an Act of the 2012 regular session contains a notice (directly below the ORS chapter number) describing how the ORS chapter is affected. To see how an entire ORS volume is affected by the 2012 regular session, see the 2012 Update to 2011 Oregon Revised Statutes.
