      SECTION 1. ORS 174.535 is amended to read:

      174.535. It is the policy of the Legislative Assembly to revise sections from Oregon Revised Statutes and Oregon law periodically in order to maintain accuracy. However, nothing in chapter 740, Oregon Laws 1983, chapter 565, Oregon Laws 1985, chapter 158, Oregon Laws 1987, chapter 171, Oregon Laws 1989, chapters 67 and 927, Oregon Laws 1991, chapters 18 and 469, Oregon Laws 1993, chapter 79, Oregon Laws 1995, [and] chapter 249, Oregon Laws 1997, or this 1999 Act is intended to alter the legislative intent or purpose of statutory sections affected by chapter 740, Oregon Laws 1983, chapter 565, Oregon Laws 1985, chapter 158, Oregon Laws 1987, chapter 171, Oregon Laws 1989, chapters 67 and 927, Oregon Laws 1991, chapters 18 and 469, Oregon Laws 1993, chapter 79, Oregon Laws 1995, [and] chapter 249, Oregon Laws 1997, and this 1999 Act except insofar as the amendments thereto, or repeals thereof, specifically require.

      SECTION 2. ORS 2.570 is amended to read:

      2.570. (1) In hearing and determining causes, the judges of the Court of Appeals may sit together or in departments.

      (2) A department shall consist of three judges. For convenience of administration, each department may be numbered. The Chief Judge shall from time to time designate the number of departments and make assignments of the judges among the departments. The Chief Judge may sit in one or more departments and when so sitting may preside. The Chief Judge shall designate a judge to preside in each department.

      (3) The majority of any department shall consist of regularly elected and qualified judges of the Court of Appeals; provided that, if disqualifications, recusals or other events reduce the number of available judges to fewer than three, the Supreme Court may appoint such number of qualified persons as may be necessary as pro tempore members of the Court of Appeals.

      (4) The Chief Judge shall apportion the business of the court between the departments. Each department shall have power to hear and determine causes, and all questions [which] that may arise therein, subject to subsection (6) of this section. The presence of three judges is necessary to transact business in any department, except such business as may be transacted in chambers by any judge. The concurrence of two judges is necessary to pronounce judgment.

      (5) In the event a judge of a department of three judges dies or becomes disabled or disqualified and is therefore unable to participate in the decision of a case submitted to that department, another judge may be assigned to the department and may participate in the decision with the other two judges of the department without resubmission of the case.

      (6) The Chief Judge or a majority of the regularly elected and qualified judges of the Court of Appeals may at any time order a cause to be heard in banc. When sitting in banc, the court may include not more than two judges pro tempore of the Court of Appeals. When the court sits in banc, the concurrence of a majority of the judges participating is necessary to pronounce judgment, but if the judges participating are equally divided in their view as to the judgment to be given, the judgment appealed from shall be affirmed.

      NOTE: Clarifies reference to Court of Appeals in (3); corrects grammar in (4).

      SECTION 3. ORS 3.425 is amended to read:

      3.425. (1) The family court department or, if there is no family court department, the presiding judge or designee of each circuit court may establish an education program designed to inform parents about the impact of family restructuring on children when the parent is a named party in any of the following proceedings:

      (a) An annulment or dissolution of marriage action.

      (b) A legal separation action.

      (c) A petition to establish custody or parenting time.

      (d) Post-decree litigation involving custody or parenting time.

      (c) Custody, parenting time and shared parenting plans.

      (d) The effect on children of parental conduct including, but not limited to, long distance parenting.

      (e) Mediation and conflict resolution.

      (3) The family court department or, if there is no family court department, the presiding judge or designee of each circuit court may establish an education program designed to provide information about dissolution law and legal procedures, mediation and other dispute resolution alternatives to persons seeking to annul or dissolve a marriage or to separate from each other. The program must include, but need not be limited to, information about:

      (a) Shared parenting plans.

      (b) Division of marital property.

      (a) Subject to the approval of the court, the parties agree not to participate;

      (b) On motion of either party or on its own motion, the court determines that participation is unnecessary; or

      (c) With prior approval of the court, the parties select and participate in comparable education programs.

      (5) The court may not require both parties to attend an education program established under this section at the same time.

      (6)(a) The family court department or, if there is no family court department, the presiding judge or designee of each circuit court shall designate the program providers for the education programs.

      (b) A program provider may charge a person a reasonable fee to attend education programs. A program provider may not exclude a person from attending education programs due to an inability to pay the fee if the court has indicated that the person is indigent or otherwise unable to pay the fee.

      (c) A program provider shall issue a certificate of completion to a participant when the participant has satisfactorily completed the education programs. A certificate of completion must be filed with the court prior to the entry of the final judgment in the action.

      NOTE: Corrects punctuation in (2), (2)(d) and (3).

      SECTION 4. ORCP 46 B is amended to read:

      B Failure to comply with order.

      B(1) Sanctions by court in the county where the deponent is located. If a deponent fails to be sworn or to answer a question after being directed to do so by a circuit [or district] court judge in the county in which the deponent is located, the failure may be considered a contempt of court.

      B(2) Sanctions by court in which action is pending. If a party or an officer, director, or managing agent or a person designated under Rule 39 C(6) or 40 A to testify on behalf of a party fails to obey an order to provide or permit discovery, including an order made under section A of this rule or Rule 44, the court in which the action is pending may make such orders in regard to the failure as are just, including among others, the following:

      B(2)(a) An order that the matters regarding which the order was made or any other designated facts shall be taken to be established for the purposes of the action in accordance with the claim of the party obtaining the order;

      B(2)(b) An order refusing to allow the disobedient party to support or oppose designated claims or defenses, or prohibiting the disobedient party from introducing designated matters in evidence;

      B(2)(c) An order striking out pleadings or parts thereof, or staying further proceedings until the order is obeyed, or dismissing the action or any part thereof, or rendering a judgment by default against the disobedient party;

      B(2)(d) In lieu of any of the foregoing orders or in addition thereto, an order treating as a contempt of court the failure to obey any order except an order to submit to a physical or mental examination.

      B(2)(e) Such orders as are listed in paragraphs (a), (b), and (c) of this subsection, where a party has failed to comply with an order under Rule 44 A requiring the party to produce another for examination, unless the party failing to comply shows inability to produce such person for examination.

      B(3) Payment of expenses. In lieu of any order listed in subsection (2) of this section or in addition thereto, the court shall require the party failing to obey the order or the attorney advising such party or both to pay the reasonable expenses, including attorney's fees, caused by the failure, unless the court finds that the failure was substantially justified or that other circumstances make an award of expenses unjust.

      NOTE: Deletes obsolete reference to district court in B(1).

      C Issuance.

      C(1) By whom issued.

      (16) Statements in a document in existence 20 years or more the authenticity of which is established.

      (17) Market quotations, tabulations, lists, directories, or other published compilations, generally used and relied upon by the public or by persons in particular occupations.

      (18) (Reserved.)

      (18a)(a) A complaint of sexual misconduct or complaint of abuse as defined in ORS 419B.005 made by the witness after the commission of the alleged misconduct or abuse at issue. Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this subsection, such evidence must be confined to the fact that the complaint was made.

      (b) A statement made by a child victim or person with developmental disabilities as described in paragraph (d) of this subsection, which statement concerns an act of abuse, as defined in ORS 419B.005, or sexual conduct performed with or on the child or person with developmental disabilities by another, is not excluded by ORS 40.455 if the child or person with developmental disabilities either testifies at the proceeding and is subject to cross-examination or is chronologically or mentally under 12 years of age and is unavailable as a witness. However, when a witness under 12 years of age or a person with developmental disabilities is unavailable as a witness, the statement may be admitted in evidence only if the proponent establishes that the time, content and circumstances of the statement provide indicia of reliability, and in a criminal trial that there is corroborative evidence of the act of abuse or sexual conduct and of the alleged perpetrator's opportunity to participate in the conduct and that the statement possesses indicia of reliability as is constitutionally required to be admitted. No statement may be admitted under this paragraph unless the proponent of the statement makes known to the adverse party the proponent's intention to offer the statement and the particulars of the statement no later than 15 days before trial, except for good cause shown. For purposes of this paragraph, in addition to those situations described in ORS 40.465 (1), the child or person with developmental disabilities shall be considered "unavailable" if the child or person with developmental disabilities has a substantial lack of memory of the subject matter of the statement, is presently incompetent to testify, is unable to communicate about the abuse or sexual conduct because of fear or other similar reason or is substantially likely, as established by expert testimony, to suffer lasting severe emotional trauma from testifying. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the court shall examine the child or person with developmental disabilities in chambers and on the record or outside the presence of the jury and on the record. The examination shall be conducted immediately prior to the commencement of the trial in the presence of the attorney and the legal guardian or other suitable adult as designated by the court. If the child or person with developmental disabilities is found to be unavailable, the court shall then determine the admissibility of the evidence. The determinations shall be appealable under ORS 138.060 (3). The purpose of the examination shall be to aid the court in making its findings regarding the availability of the child or person with developmental disabilities as a witness and the reliability of the statement of the child or person with developmental disabilities. In determining whether a statement possesses indicia of reliability under this paragraph, the court may consider, but is not limited to, the following factors:

      (A) The personal knowledge of the child or person with developmental disabilities of the event;

      (B) The age and maturity of the child or extent of disability of the person with developmental disabilities;

      (C) Certainty that the statement was made, including the credibility of the person testifying about the statement and any motive the person may have to falsify or distort the statement;

      (D) Any apparent motive the child or person with developmental disabilities may have to falsify or distort the event, including bias, corruption or coercion;

      (E) The timing of the statement of the child or person with developmental disabilities;

      (F) Whether more than one person heard the statement;

      (G) Whether the child or person with developmental disabilities was suffering pain or distress when making the statement;

      (H) Whether the child's young age makes it unlikely that the child fabricated a statement that represents a graphic, detailed account beyond the child's knowledge and experience;

      (I) Whether the statement has internal consistency or coherence and uses terminology appropriate to the child's age or to the extent of the disability of the person with developmental disabilities;

      (J) Whether the statement is spontaneous or directly responsive to questions; and

      (K) Whether the statement was elicited by leading questions.

      (c) This subsection applies to all civil, criminal and juvenile proceedings.

      (d) For the purposes of this subsection, "developmental disabilities" means any disability attributable to mental retardation, autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy or other disabling neurological condition that requires training or support similar to that required by persons with mental retardation, if either of the following apply:

      (A) The disability originates before the person attains 22 years of age, or if the disability is attributable to mental retardation the condition is manifested before the person attains 18 years of age, the disability can be expected to continue indefinitely, and the disability constitutes a substantial handicap to the ability of the person to function in society.

      (B) The disability results in a significant subaverage general intellectual functioning with concurrent deficits in adaptive behavior that are manifested during the developmental period.

      (19) Reputation among members of a person's family by blood, adoption or marriage, or among a person's associates, or in the community, concerning a person's birth, adoption, marriage, divorce, death, legitimacy, relationship by blood or adoption or marriage, ancestry, or other similar fact of a person's personal or family history.

      (20) Reputation in a community, arising before the controversy, as to boundaries of or customs affecting lands in the community, and reputation as to events of general history important to the community or state or nation in which located.

      (21) Reputation of a person's character among associates of the person or in the community.

      (22) Evidence of a final judgment, entered after a trial or upon a plea of guilty, but not upon a plea of no contest, adjudging a person guilty of a crime other than a traffic offense, to prove any fact essential to sustain the judgment, but not including, when offered by the government in a criminal prosecution for purposes other than impeachment, judgments against persons other than the accused. The pendency of an appeal may be shown but does not affect admissibility.

      (23) Judgments as proof of matters of personal, family or general history, or boundaries, essential to the judgment, if the same would be provable by evidence of reputation.

      (24) Notwithstanding the limits contained in subsection (18a) of this section, in any proceeding in which a child under 12 years of age at the time of trial, or a person with developmental disabilities as described in subsection [(18)(d)] (18a)(d) of this section, may be called as a witness to testify concerning an act of abuse, as defined in ORS 419B.005, or sexual conduct performed with or on the child or person with developmental disabilities by another, the testimony of the child or person with developmental disabilities taken by contemporaneous examination and cross-examination in another place under the supervision of the trial judge and communicated to the courtroom by closed circuit television or other audiovisual means. Testimony will be allowed as provided in this subsection only if the court finds that there is a substantial likelihood, established by expert testimony, that the child or person with developmental disabilities will suffer severe emotional or psychological harm if required to testify in open court. If the court makes such a finding, the court, on motion of a party, the child, the person with developmental disabilities or the court in a civil proceeding, or on motion of the district attorney, the child or the person with developmental disabilities in a criminal or juvenile proceeding, may order that the testimony of the child or the person with developmental disabilities be taken as described in this subsection. Only the judge, the attorneys for the parties, the parties, individuals necessary to operate the equipment and any individual the court finds would contribute to the welfare and well-being of the child or person with developmental disabilities may be present during the testimony of the child or person with developmental disabilities.

      (25) Any document containing data prepared or recorded by the Oregon State Police pursuant to ORS 813.160 (1)(b)(C) or (E), or pursuant to ORS 475.235 (3), if the document is produced by data retrieval from the Law Enforcement Data System or other computer system maintained and operated by the Oregon State Police, and the person retrieving the data attests that the information was retrieved directly from the system and that the document accurately reflects the data retrieved.

      (26)(a) A statement not specifically covered by any of the foregoing exceptions but having equivalent circumstantial guarantees of trustworthiness, if the court determines that:

      (A) The statement is relevant;

      (B) The statement is more probative on the point for which it is offered than any other evidence [which] that the proponent can procure through reasonable efforts; and

      (C) The general purposes of the Oregon Evidence Code and the interests of justice will best be served by admission of the statement into evidence.

      (b) A statement may not be admitted under this subsection unless the proponent of it makes known to the adverse party the intention to offer the statement and the particulars of it, including the name and address of the declarant, sufficiently in advance of the trial or hearing, or as soon as practicable after it becomes apparent that such statement is probative of the issues at hand, to provide the adverse party with a fair opportunity to prepare to meet it.

      SECTION 18. ORS 100.450 is amended to read:

      100.450. (1) Whenever an association of unit owners levies any assessment against a unit, the association of unit owners, upon complying with subsection (2) of this section, shall have a lien upon the individual unit and the undivided interest in the common elements appertaining to such unit for any unpaid assessments and interest as provided in subsection (2)(b) of this section. The lien shall be prior to a homestead exemption and all other liens or encumbrances upon the unit except:

      (a) Tax and assessment liens; and

      (b) A prior mortgage or trust deed of record unless:

      (A) The condominium consists of [less] fewer than seven units, all of which are to be used for nonresidential purposes;

      (B) The declaration provides that the lien of any mortgage or trust deed of record affecting the property shall be subordinate to the lien of the association provided under subsection (1) of this section; and

      (C) The holder of any mortgage or trust deed of record affecting the property when the declaration is recorded executes a separate subordination of the holder's interest to the declaration which is attached as an exhibit and which states that the holder understands that the declaration subordinates the holder's lien to the assessment lien of the association provided under subsection (1) of this section.

      (2)(a) An association of unit owners claiming the benefits of subsection (1) of this section shall record in the county in which the unit or some part thereof is located a claim containing a true statement of the amount due for the unpaid assessments after deducting all just credits and offsets; the name of the owner of the unit, or reputed owner, if known; the name of the condominium and the designation of the unit, sufficient for identification.

      (b) Where a claim has been filed and recorded pursuant to this section and the owner of the unit subject to the claim thereafter fails to pay any assessment chargeable to such unit, then so long as the original or any subsequent unpaid assessment remains unpaid such claim shall automatically accumulate the subsequent unpaid assessments and interest thereon without the necessity of further filings under this section.

      (3) The claim shall be verified by the oath of some person having knowledge of the facts and shall be filed with and recorded by the recording officer in the book kept for the purpose of recording liens filed under ORS 87.035. The record shall be indexed as deeds and other conveyances are required by law to be indexed.

      (4) The proceedings to foreclose liens created by this section shall conform as nearly as possible to the proceedings to foreclose liens created by ORS 87.010, except that notwithstanding ORS 87.055, a lien may be continued in force for a period of time not to exceed six years from the date the claim is filed under subsection (3) of this section. For the purpose of determining the date the claim is filed in those cases where subsequent unpaid assessments have accumulated under the claim as provided in subsection (2)(b) of this section, the claim regarding each unpaid assessment shall be deemed to have been filed at the time such unpaid assessment became due. The lien may be enforced by the board of directors acting on behalf of the association of unit owners. An action to recover a money judgment for unpaid assessments may be maintained without foreclosing or waiving the lien securing the claim for unpaid assessments. No action to foreclose a lien under this section or recover a money judgment for unpaid assessments may be maintained unless the Condominium Information Report and the Annual Report described in ORS 100.250 are designated current as provided in ORS 100.255.

      (5) Unless the declaration or bylaws provides otherwise, fees, late charges, fines and interest imposed pursuant to ORS 100.405 (4)(i), (j), (k) and (L) are enforceable as assessments under this section.

      (6) With respect to condominium units also constituting timeshare property as defined by ORS 94.803, liens created by this section shall be assessed to the timeshare owners in the timeshare property according to the method for determining each owner's liability for common expenses under the timeshare instrument and shall be enforced individually against each timeshare owner in the condominium unit.

      (7) Notwithstanding the priority established for a lien for unpaid assessments and interest under subsection (1) of this section, the lien shall also be prior to the lien of any prior mortgage or trust deed of record for the unit and the undivided interest in the common elements, if:

      (a) The association of unit owners for the condominium in which the unit is located has given the lender under the mortgage or trust deed 90 days prior written notice that the owner of the unit is in default in payment of an assessment. The notice shall contain:

      (A) Name of borrower;

      (B) Recording date of trust deed or mortgage;

      (C) Recording information;

      (D) Name of condominium, unit owner and unit identification; and

      (E) Amount of unpaid assessment.

      (b) The notice under paragraph (a) of this subsection shall set forth the following in 10-point type:

___________________________________________________________________

 

      NOTICE: The lien of the association may become prior to that of the lender pursuant to ORS 100.450.

___________________________________________________________________

 

      (c) The lender has not initiated judicial action to foreclose the mortgage or requested issuance of a trustee's notice of sale under the trust deed or accepted a deed in lieu of foreclosure in the circumstances described in ORS 100.465 prior to the expiration of 90 days following the notice by the unit owners' association.

      (d) The unit owners' association has provided the lender, upon request, with copies of any liens filed on the unit, a statement of the assessments and interest remaining unpaid on the unit and other documents which the lender may reasonably request.

      (e) The borrower is in default under the terms of the mortgage or trust deed as to principal and interest.

      (f) A copy of the notice described in paragraph (a) of this subsection has been verified, filed and recorded in the manner prescribed in subsection (3) of this section.

Unless a majority of the votes cast in an election favor such union security agreement, the board shall certify deauthorization[,] thereof. A petition for deauthorization of a union security agreement must be filed not more than 90 calendar days after the collective bargaining agreement is executed. Only one such election shall be conducted in any appropriate bargaining unit during the term of a collective bargaining agreement between a public employer and the recognized or certified bargaining representative.

      (19) "Public employee" means an employee of a public employer but does not include elected officials, persons appointed to serve on boards or commissions, incarcerated persons working under section 41, Article I of the Oregon Constitution, or persons who are confidential employees, supervisory employees or managerial employees.

Failure to assert supervisory status in any Employment Relations Board proceeding or in negotiations for any collective bargaining agreement shall not thereafter prevent assertion of supervisory status in any subsequent board proceeding or contract negotiation.

      (a) Emergency conditions require prompt execution of the contract; or

      (b) In case of sale of surplus property by a public agency, the number, value and nature of the items to be sold make it probable that the cost of conducting a sale by competitive bidding will be such that a liquidation sale will result in substantially greater net revenue to the public agency.

The rules shall prescribe that if an emergency is declared, any contract awarded under this subsection and subsection (4)(a) of this section must be awarded within 60 days following declaration of the emergency, unless the director or board grants an extension.

      (6) In granting exemptions pursuant to subsection (2)(a) and (b) of this section, the director or board shall:

      (a) Where appropriate, direct the use of alternate contracting and purchasing practices that take account of market realities and modern or innovative contracting and purchasing methods, which are also consistent with the public policy of encouraging competition.

      (b) Require and approve or disapprove written findings by the public contracting agency that support the awarding of a particular public contract or a class of public contracts, without the competitive requirements of subsection (1) of this section. The findings must show that the exemption of a contract or class of contracts complies with the requirements of subsection (2)(a) and (b) of this section.

      (2) A public agency shall select consultants described in subsection (1) of this section on the basis of qualifications for the type of professional service required. A public agency may solicit or use pricing policies and proposals or other pricing information to determine consultant compensation only after the public agency has selected a candidate under subsection (3) of this section.

      (3) Subject to the requirements of subsection (2) of this section, the procedures that a public agency creates for the screening and selection of consultants and the selection of a candidate under this section shall be within the sole discretion of the public agency and may be adjusted to accommodate the public agency's scope, schedule and budget objectives for a particular project.

The compensation level paid must be reasonable and fair to the public agency as determined solely by the public agency. Authority to negotiate a contract under this section does not supersede any provision of ORS 279.316[,] or 279.712 [or 291.021].

      (5) If the public agency and the selected candidate are unable for any reason to negotiate a contract at a compensation level that is reasonable and fair to the public agency, the public agency shall, either orally or in writing, formally terminate negotiations with the selected candidate. The public agency may then negotiate with another candidate. The negotiation process may continue in this manner through successive candidates until an agreement is reached or the agency terminates the consultant contracting process.

      (6) Notwithstanding ORS 279.011, this section applies only if the public agency personal service contract is issued by an agency of the State of Oregon and not by an agency of any political subdivision thereof or any public body created by intergovernmental agreement.

A notice which is filed must include a description of the property that is the subject of the seizure. Real property, including interests arising out of land sale contracts, shall be seized only upon recording notice of seizure containing a legal description of the property in the mortgage records of the county in which the real property is located.

      (6) Property which has been unconstitutionally seized may be subject to forfeiture if the basis for forfeiture under this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135] is sustained by evidence which is not the fruit of the unconstitutional seizure.

      (7) Promptly upon seizure, the officer who seized the property shall make an inventory of the property seized and shall deliver a receipt embodying the inventory to the person from whose possession they are taken or to the person in apparent control of the property at the time it is seized. The officer may, in addition, provide an estimate of the value of the property seized and information on the right to file a claim under ORS 475A.055 (2), and the deadline for filing that claim. If the property is unoccupied or there is no one present in apparent control, the officer shall leave the receipt suitably affixed to the property. If the property is physically removed from the location of seizure and it is unoccupied or there is no one present in apparent control, then the officer shall promptly file the receipt in the public records of the forfeiting agency. Every receipt prepared under this subsection shall contain, in addition to an inventory of the property seized, the following information:

      (a) The identity of the seizing agency; and

      (b) The address and telephone number of the office or other place where the person may obtain further information concerning the forfeiture.

      (8) In determining probable cause or reasonable suspicion for seizure, evidence that cash, weapons or negotiable instruments were found in close proximity to controlled substances or to instrumentalities of prohibited conduct gives rise to an inference that the cash, weapons or negotiable instruments are subject to forfeiture. This inference is sufficient in itself to carry the forfeiting agency's initial burden under ORS 475A.080.

      (9) In the event that property is seized from the possession of a person who asserts a possessory lien over such property pursuant to applicable law, notwithstanding any other provision of law, any lien of the person from whom the property was seized shall remain in effect and shall be enforceable as fully as though the person had retained possession of the property.

      SECTION 148. ORS 475A.045 is amended to read:

      475A.045. (1)(a) Except as otherwise provided in this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135], property seized for forfeiture is not subject to replevin, conveyance, sequestration or attachment, nor is it subject to a motion or order to return under ORS chapter 133. The seizure of property or the commencement of a forfeiture proceeding pursuant to this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135] shall not abate, impede or in any way delay the initiation or prosecution of a suit or action by a financial institution for the possession of seized property in which the financial institution has or purports to have a lien or security interest or for the foreclosure of such lien or security interest. A financial institution may proceed with any suit or action involving property in which it has a lien or security interest even though a seizure has occurred and forfeiture proceedings have been or will be commenced. Any such suit or action may be consolidated with the forfeiture proceeding for the purpose of trial. If property which may be subject to forfeiture is sold prior to the conclusion of the forfeiture proceedings, the sheriff, trustee or other person conducting the sale and who has actual notice of the forfeiture proceedings shall distribute the sale proceeds as follows:

      (A) To the expenses of the sale;

      (B) To the payment of the obligations owed to the foreclosing financial institution that are secured by the property and to any other person whose lien or security interest in the property has been foreclosed in the suit or action in the order determined by the court; and

      (C) The surplus, if any, shall be distributed to the seizing or forfeiting agency, or to the court in which the forfeiture proceedings are pending.

      (b) The sheriff, trustee or other person who distributes the sale proceeds as provided shall not be liable to any person who has or asserts an interest in the property.

      (2) Within 30 days following seizure of property for forfeiture, the seizing agency, in consultation with the district attorney of the county in which the property was seized for forfeiture, shall determine whether it will seek the forfeiture of the property. If the seizing agency elects not to seek forfeiture, it shall pay all costs and expenses relating to towing and storage of the property, and shall cause to be discharged any possessory chattel liens arising under ORS 87.152 to 87.162 that have attached to the property since its seizure and release the property. The property may be released to a person other than the person from whose custody or control the property was taken if the seizing agency, forfeiting agency or forfeiture counsel first mails to the last-known addresses of all persons known to have an interest in the property a notice of intent to release the property. The notice shall specify the person to whom the property is to be released and shall detail the time and place of the release. An agency that complies with the provisions of this subsection by paying costs and expenses of towing and storage, discharging possessory liens, mailing any required notices and releasing the property shall not be liable for its actions under this subsection or for any consequences thereof.

      (3) A forfeiting agency shall, pending forfeiture and final disposition and subject to the need to retain it in any criminal proceeding, provide that property in the physical custody of the seizing or forfeiting agency be serviced or maintained as may be reasonably appropriate to preserve the value of the property.

      (4) A forfeiting agency may, pending forfeiture and final disposition and subject to the need to retain seized property in any criminal proceeding:

      (a) Provide that the seized property be transferred for forfeiture to any city, county, state or federal agency with forfeiture authority, provided that no such transfer shall have the effect of diminishing or reducing the rights of any third party under this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135].

      (b) Apply to the court for an order providing that the seized property may be sold, leased, rented or operated in the manner and on the terms that may be specified in the court's order. The court shall deny any application unless the sale, lease, rental or operation of the property will be conducted in a commercially reasonable manner and shall not result in a material reduction of the property's value. An order shall only be entered:

      (A) After notice and opportunity to be heard is provided to all persons known to have or to claim an interest in the property; and

      (B) With the consent of all persons holding security interests of record in the property.

      (c) Provide that the seized property be removed to a storage area for safekeeping.

      (5) Unless otherwise ordered by the court, the proceeds of the sale, leasing, renting or operation under subsection (4) of this section shall be held by the forfeiting agency, and the rights of holders of security interests of record in the property shall attach to the proceeds of the sale, leasing, renting or operation in the same order of priority as interests attached to the property.

      (6)(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this subsection and except for currency with apparent or known intrinsic collector value, all cash seized for forfeiture, together with all cash received from the sale, leasing, renting or operation of the property, shall be immediately deposited in an insured interest-bearing forfeiture trust account or accounts maintained by the seizing or forfeiting agency exclusively for this purpose. Cash may be retained as evidence in a criminal proceeding but shall be deposited immediately when the need to retain it as evidence is discharged.

      (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of this subsection, all cash seized for forfeiture which at the time of seizure is deposited in any form of account in a financial institution may remain in the account in the financial institution. From the time of seizure until the forfeiture proceeding is abandoned, or until a court ultimately enters or fails to enter a judgment of forfeiture, all deposits except the deposit of interest by the financial institution, withdrawals or other transactions involving the account are prohibited, unless approved by the court.

      (c) Subject to any court order, interest earned upon cash deposited in a forfeiture trust account or held in an account in a financial institution under this subsection shall be disbursed as follows:

      (A) If the forfeiture proceeding is abandoned, or if the court ultimately fails to enter a judgment of forfeiture or foreclosure, any interest earned, together with the cash deposited in the forfeiture trust account in connection with the seizure in question, shall be paid by the seizing or forfeiting agency to the person from whom it was seized and any interest earned, together with the cash deposited in an account in a financial institution shall be released by the seizing or forfeiting agency to the person from whom it was seized.

      (B) If a judgment of forfeiture is entered, but parties other than the forfeiting agency establish rights to portions of the amount deposited in the forfeiture trust account or the account held in a financial institution which are in the aggregate larger than or equal to the cash on deposit plus interest earned thereon, the interest, together with the cash on deposit, shall be disbursed by the forfeiting agency to the parties in the order of their priority.

      (C) If a judgment of forfeiture is entered, and the total amount arising out of the seizure which is on deposit in the forfeiture trust account or in an account in a financial institution, including interest earned on moneys deposited, is greater than the aggregate amount needed to satisfy the established interests of security interest holders, lienholders and other claimants, then the balance remaining after payment by the forfeiting agency to parties shall be retained by the forfeiting agency.

      (7) If the property seized for forfeiture consists of stocks, bonds, promissory notes, or other security or evidence of indebtedness, and the property is held in some form of account in a financial institution, the property may remain in the account pending a final decision in the forfeiture proceedings. Unless otherwise allowed by order of the court, no transactions involving the account shall be permitted other than the deposit or reinvestment of dividends or other normally recurring payments on the property. Any accrual to the value of the property during the pendency of forfeiture proceedings shall be disbursed in the manner provided for the disbursement of interest under subsection (6) of this section.

      (8) If property is seized for forfeiture or if a notice of forfeiture is filed without a prior judicial determination of probable cause, a court, on application filed by an owner of or interest holder in the property within 15 days after notice of its seizure for forfeiture, or actual knowledge of it, whichever is earlier, may, after five days' written notice to the forfeiture counsel, issue an order to show cause to the forfeiting agency, for a hearing on the sole issue of whether probable cause for forfeiture of the property then exists. If the court finds that there is no probable cause for forfeiture of the property, the property seized for forfeiture from the applicant or subjected to the notice of forfeiture shall be released from its seizure for forfeiture or lien pending the outcome of a judicial proceeding under ORS 475A.075.

      NOTE: Deletes superfluous ORS references in (1)(a) and (4)(a).

      SECTION 149. ORS 475A.075 is amended to read:

      475A.075. A civil action in rem may be brought as provided in this section in any case in which forfeiture is sought. A civil action in rem must be brought if the property is real property, the property is in whole or part a manufactured dwelling as defined in ORS 446.003, the property is a floating home as defined in ORS 830.700 or if the property is subject to an interest in favor of any person known to have an interest, other than a person who engaged in prohibited conduct.

      (1) If a forfeiting agency has commenced proceedings under ORS 475A.055, then an action shall be commenced by forfeiture counsel, within 15 days of receipt of a claim. If no proceedings have been commenced under ORS 475A.055, then the action shall be commenced by forfeiture counsel within 30 days of seizure. The property may be released by forfeiture counsel as provided in ORS 475A.045 (2).

      (2) An action is commenced by filing a complaint. Responses to a complaint shall conform to the following procedure:

      (a) A person claiming an interest in the property shall respond as provided in the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure and, if a claim has not previously been filed, by filing a claim in the form set forth in ORS 475A.055 (3) with the court and posting a bond with the court. The bond shall be a cash bond in an amount equal to 10 percent of the value of the interest claimed by the person in the property. Upon good cause shown by motion and affidavit filed with the initial appearance, the court may waive or reduce the bond. Failure to file an appearance, claim and bond shall constitute a default. The bond shall be returned to the claimant upon the entry of a final determination on the claim.

      (b) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (a) of this subsection, a financial institution holding an interest in the seized property shall respond to a complaint with an affidavit establishing that the financial institution's interest in the property was acquired:

      (A) In the regular course of business as a financial institution;

      (B) For valuable consideration;

      (C) Without knowledge of the prohibited conduct;

      (D) In good faith and without intent to defeat the interest of any potential forfeiting agency; and

      (E) With respect to personal property, prior to the seizure of the property, or with respect to real property, recorded prior to the recording of notice of the seizure of the real property in the mortgage records of the county in which the real property is located. Failure to file an affidavit shall constitute a default. The affidavit shall be filed within 30 days from the date of service.

      (c) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (a) of this subsection, any person, other than a financial institution, who transfers or conveys an interest in real property pursuant to a contract for transfer or conveyance of an interest in real property as defined in ORS 93.905 and who retains an interest in the real property, or any successor in interest, may respond to a complaint with an affidavit establishing that the person:

      (A) Received the interest in return for valuable consideration or by way of devise or intestate succession;

      (B) Had no knowledge at the time of transfer or conveyance of the prohibited conduct;

      (C) Acted in good faith and without intent to defeat the interest of any potential forfeiting agency;

      (D) Recorded the interest in the mortgage records of the county in which the real property is located prior to the recording of any notice of intent to seize or notice of seizure; and

      (E) Continued to hold the interest without acquiescing in the prohibited conduct.

      (d) For the purposes of paragraph (c) of this subsection, a person shall be considered to have acquiesced in prohibited conduct if the person knew of the prohibited conduct and knowingly failed to take reasonable action under the circumstances to terminate or avoid use of the property in the course of prohibited conduct. For purposes of this section, "reasonable action under the circumstances" includes, but is not limited to:

      (A) Reporting the prohibited conduct to a police agency;

      (B) Commencing action that will assert the rights of the affiant as to the property interest;

      (C) Terminating a rental agreement; or

      (D) Seeking an abatement order under the provisions of ORS 105.505 to 105.520, or under the provisions of ORS 105.555 to 105.565 and 105.575 to 105.600, or under any ordinance or regulation allowing abatement of nuisances.

      (e) The affidavit permitted by paragraph (c) of this subsection shall be filed within 30 days from the date of service of the summons and complaint. Failure to file an affidavit or to respond as set forth in paragraph (a) of this subsection shall constitute a default.

      (f) In response to an affidavit filed pursuant to paragraph (c) of this subsection, the forfeiting agency may controvert any or all of the assertions made in the affidavit. The affidavit of the forfeiting agency shall be filed within 20 days of the filing of the affidavit filed under paragraph (c) of this subsection. The transferor, conveyor or successor in interest may respond, within five days of the filing of the affidavit of the forfeiting agency, with a supplemental affidavit limited to the matters stated in the affidavit of the forfeiting agency. If the forfeiting agency does not file an affidavit within the time allowed, the transferor, conveyor or successor in interest shall be considered a financial institution for all purposes under this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135].

      (g)(A) If the forfeiting agency files an affidavit under paragraph (f) of this subsection, the court shall determine from the affidavits whether there is a genuine issue of material fact with respect to the assertions of the transferor, conveyor or successor in interest.

      (B) If the court determines that there is no genuine issue of material fact as to the truth of the assertions in the affidavit filed under paragraph (f) of this subsection, the transferor, conveyor or successor in interest shall be considered a financial institution for all purposes under this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135]. The court shall order the forfeiting agency to pay the costs and disbursements, including attorney fees, of the prevailing transferor, conveyor or successor in interest if the forfeiting agency does not prevail.

      (C) If the court determines that there is a genuine issue of material fact as to the truth of the assertions in the affidavit filed pursuant to paragraph (f) of this subsection, the transferor, conveyor or successor in interest shall, within 15 days, respond as provided in paragraph (a) of this subsection. The court may order the transferor, conveyor or successor in interest to pay the attorney fees of the forfeiting agency that were incurred in contesting the affidavit of the transferor, conveyor or successor in interest if the court determines that the affidavit of the transferor, conveyor or successor in interest was frivolous.

      (3) All persons known to have an interest in the property, including any claimant, shall be served with a true copy of the inventory of the property prepared pursuant to ORS 475A.035 and 475A.055, the summons and the complaint as provided in ORCP 5 and 7 D. Notice of the action shall be published as provided in ORCP 7 D(6)(b) to (d) unless notice has previously been published in accordance with ORS 475A.055 (1). In the event that a forfeiture involves a vehicle, and the notices required by this statute have been given, and substitute service on the claimant is required because personal service cannot be reasonably accomplished, service as authorized by ORCP 7 D(4) shall be sufficient to establish jurisdiction over a registered owner or operator of a vehicle. If the property is in whole or part a manufactured dwelling as defined in ORS 446.003 or a floating home as defined in ORS 830.700, the forfeiting agency shall, in addition to serving all persons known to have an interest in the property, record a notice of seizure containing a description of the manufactured dwelling or floating home in all public offices maintaining records that impart constructive notice of matters relating to manufactured dwellings or floating homes.

      (4) All judicial proceedings under this chapter shall be governed by the Oregon Rules of Civil Procedure to the extent that they do not conflict with specific provisions of this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135].

      (5)(a) The filing of criminal charges related to any civil proceeding for forfeiture may, upon motion of forfeiture counsel or the district attorney or upon motion on behalf of defendant in a related criminal proceeding, stay the civil forfeiture proceeding until the trial, plea or dismissal of the related criminal proceeding. A motion for stay on behalf of the defendant in a related criminal proceeding shall constitute a waiver of double jeopardy by the defendant as to the civil forfeiture proceeding and any related criminal proceeding. Pursuant to subsection (6) of this section, a civil forfeiture proceeding stayed under this paragraph may be consolidated for trial or other resolution with any related criminal proceeding.

      (b) The court may stay the civil forfeiture proceeding upon motion of a party and good cause shown. Good cause may include a reasonable fear on the part of a claimant that the claimant could be prosecuted for conduct arising out of the same factual situation which gave rise to the seizure of property. Pursuant to subsection (6) of this section, a civil forfeiture proceeding stayed under this paragraph may be consolidated for trial or other resolution with any related criminal proceeding.

      (6) Notwithstanding any stay entered pursuant to subsection (5)(a) or (b) of this section, an action pursuant to this section may be consolidated with any other action pursuant to this section relating to the same property or parties on motion by any party in any related action. Upon motion by the state or a political subdivision of the state, or any criminal defendant who is also a claimant, a civil forfeiture proceeding under this section may be consolidated for trial or other resolution with any related criminal proceeding. Trial or other resolution of the civil forfeiture action shall immediately follow the related criminal trial or other resolution, shall be part of the same proceeding and shall be heard by the same trier of fact. Any objection by the defendant to the consolidation or any motion by the defendant to sever the related criminal case from the civil proceeding for forfeiture shall constitute a waiver of double jeopardy as to any related criminal action and the civil forfeiture proceeding.

      (7) The action shall be commenced and tried:

      (a) In the case of real property, in the circuit court in a county in which the property is situated; or

      (b) In all other cases, in the circuit court of the county in which the property was seized or the county in which any part of the prohibited conduct took place.

      NOTE: Deletes superfluous ORS references in (2)(f), (2)(g)(B) and (4).

      SECTION 150. ORS 475A.110 is amended to read:

      475A.110. A judgment of forfeiture shall recite the basis for the judgment.

      (1) If no financial institutions have filed the affidavit described in ORS 475A.075 (2)(b), and if the court has failed to uphold the claim or affidavit of any other claimant, the effect of the judgment shall be that:

      (a) Title to the property shall pass to the forfeiting agency free of any interest or encumbrance thereon in favor of any person who has been given notice;

      (b) The forfeiting agency may transfer good and sufficient title to any subsequent purchaser or transferee, and the title shall be recognized by all courts, by the state, by the departments and agencies of the state, and by any political subdivision. In the case of real property, the forfeiting agency shall warrant the title against constitutional defect. A warranty under this section is limited to the purchase price of the real property; and

      (c) Any department, agency or officer of the state or any political subdivision whose official functions include the issuance of certificates or other evidence of title shall be immune from civil or criminal liability when such issuance is pursuant to a judgment of forfeiture.

      (2) If any affidavits are filed by financial institutions as provided in ORS 475A.075 (2)(b), or if any claimants file an appearance, claim and bond as provided in ORS 475A.075 (2)(a) or an affidavit as provided in ORS 475A.075 (2)(c):

      (a) The court shall foreclose all security interests, liens and vendor's interests of financial institutions and claimants as to which the court determines that there is a legal or equitable basis for foreclosure; and

      (b) All other interests applicable to the property, which are not foreclosed or otherwise eliminated through a judgment and decree of foreclosure, shall, if and to the extent that they are valid and subsisting, remain in effect, and the property shall remain subject to them upon completion of the forfeiture proceeding.

      (3) Notwithstanding the provisions of this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135] or other law, if a financial institution or other person has filed an affidavit described in ORS 475A.075, or if the court has upheld the claim of any claimant, then as to each item of property seized:

      (a) If the court has determined that the property should not be forfeited and has not foreclosed the security interests, liens or other interests covering the property, the court shall render judgment in favor of the owner of the property, the property shall be returned to the owner and all security interests, liens and other interests applicable to the property shall remain in effect as though the property had never been seized. Upon the return of the property to the owner, the seizing agency shall pay all costs and expenses relating to towing and storage of the property, and shall cause to be discharged any possessory chattel liens on the property arising under ORS 87.152 to 87.162 that have attached to the property since the seizure.

      (b) If the court has determined that the property should not be forfeited and has foreclosed one or more interests covering the property, including security interests or liens covering the property or contracts for the transfer or conveyance of the property, the seizing agency shall pay all costs and expenses relating to towing and storage of the property, and shall cause to be discharged any possessory chattel liens on the property arising under ORS 87.152 to 87.162 that have attached to the property since the seizure and the court shall order the property sold pursuant to a sheriff's sale or other sale authorized by the court within such time as may be prescribed by the court following entry of the judgment. If any interests covering the property have not been foreclosed, including any liens or security interests of a claimant whose claim has been upheld, or of a financial institution that has filed the affidavit described in ORS 475A.075, the property shall be sold subject to those interests. The judgment shall also order the proceeds of such sale applied in the following order:

      (A) To the payment of the costs of the sale;

      (B) To the satisfaction of the foreclosed liens, security interests and contracts in order of their priority; and

      (C) The excess, if any, to the owner of the property.

      (c) If the court has determined that the property should be forfeited and has foreclosed one or more security interests, liens, contracts or other interests covering the property, the seizing agency shall pay all costs and expenses relating to towing and storage of the property, and shall cause to be discharged any possessory chattel liens on the property arising under ORS 87.152 to 87.162 that have attached to the property since the seizure and the court shall order the property sold pursuant to a sheriff's sale or other sale authorized by the court. If any interest in the property was claimed by a financial institution or other claimant and the interest was upheld but not foreclosed, the property shall be sold subject to the interest. The sale of the property shall be held within such time as may be prescribed by the court following entry of the judgment. The judgment shall also order the proceeds of such sale applied in the following order:

      (A) To the payment of the costs of the sale;

      (B) To the satisfaction of the foreclosed liens, security interests and contracts in the order of their priority; and

      (C) The excess, if any, to the forfeiting agency to be disposed of as provided in ORS 475A.120.

      (d) If the court has determined that the property should be forfeited and has not foreclosed the interests of any party in the property, the seizing agency shall pay all costs and expenses relating to towing and storage of the property and shall cause to be discharged any possessory chattel liens on the property arising under ORS 87.152 to 87.162 that have attached to the property since the seizure, and the court shall enter a judgment awarding the property to the forfeiting agency, subject to the interests of any claimants whose claims or affidavits were upheld by the court, and subject to the interests of any financial institutions that filed affidavits under ORS 475A.075 (2)(b), which shall remain in full force and effect.

      (4) The forfeiting agency shall not be liable to any person as a consequence of obedience to a judgment directing conveyance to a financial institution.

      (5) A copy of the judgment, including any judgment entered under the provisions of ORS 475A.055 (4), shall be sent by forfeiture counsel to the Asset Forfeiture Oversight Advisory Committee.

      (6)(a) On entry of judgment for a claimant in any proceeding to forfeit property under this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135], unless the court has foreclosed one or more security interests, liens or other interests covering the property, such property or interest in property shall be returned or conveyed immediately to the claimant designated by the court. The court, in the manner provided by ORCP 68, shall award costs, disbursements and attorney fees to the prevailing claimants and financial institutions, to be paid by the forfeiting agency.

      (b) If it appears that there was reasonable suspicion that the property was subject to forfeiture, the court shall cause a finding to be entered, and no claimant or financial institution shall be entitled to damages, nor is the person who made the seizure, the seizing or forfeiting agency or forfeiture counsel liable to suit or judgment on account of such seizure or action. An order directing seizure issued under ORS 475A.035 (4) shall constitute a finding of reasonable suspicion that the property was subject to forfeiture.

      (7) Nothing contained in this section shall prevent a claimant or financial institution from obtaining any deficiency to which such claimant or financial institution would otherwise be entitled.

      (8) Nothing in this section or in ORS 475A.045 shall prevent a seizing agency from entering into an agreement with a claimant or other person for the reimbursement of the seizing agency for the costs and expenses relating to towing and storage of property or the cost of discharging any possessory chattel lien on the property arising under ORS 87.152 to 87.162 that attached to the property between seizure of the property and release or forfeiture of the property.

      NOTE: Deletes superfluous ORS references in (3) and (6)(a).

      SECTION 151. ORS 475A.115 is amended to read:

      475A.115. Distribution of property or proceeds in accordance with this chapter [and ORS 167.243, 167.248, 205.246, 471.666, 475A.010, 475A.040, 475A.050 and 475A.135] shall be made equitably and may be pursuant to intergovernmental agreement under ORS chapter 190. Intergovernmental agreements providing for such distributions and in effect July 24, 1989, shall remain valid unless changed by the parties.

      480.315. The Legislative Assembly declares that, except as provided in ORS 480.345 to 480.385, it is in the public interest to maintain a prohibition on the self-service dispensing of Class 1 flammable liquids at retail. The Legislative Assembly finds and declares that:

      (1) The dispensing of Class 1 flammable liquids by dispensers properly trained in appropriate safety procedures reduces fire hazards directly associated with the dispensing of Class 1 flammable liquids;

      (2) Appropriate safety standards often are unenforceable at retail self-service stations in other states because cashiers are often unable to maintain a clear view of and give undivided attention to the dispensing of Class 1 flammable liquids by customers;

      (3) Higher liability insurance rates charged to retail self-service stations reflect the dangers posed to customers when they leave their vehicles to dispense Class 1 flammable liquids, such as the increased risk of crime and the increased risk of personal injury resulting from slipping on slick surfaces;

      (4) The dangers of crime and slick surfaces described in subsection (3) of this section are enhanced because Oregon's weather is uniquely adverse, causing wet pavement and reduced visibility;

      (5) The dangers described in subsection (3) of this section are heightened when the customer is a senior citizen or is disabled, especially if the customer uses a mobility aid, such as a wheelchair, walker, cane or crutches;

      (6) Attempts by other states to require the providing of aid to senior citizens and the disabled in the self-service dispensing of Class 1 flammable liquids at retail have failed, and therefore, senior citizens and the disabled must pay the higher costs of full service;

      (7) Exposure to toxic fumes represents a health hazard to customers dispensing Class 1 flammable liquids;

      (8) The hazard described in subsection (7) of this section is heightened when the customer is pregnant;

      (9) The exposure to Class 1 flammable liquids through dispensing should, in general, be limited to as few individuals as possible, such as gasoline station owners and their employees or other trained and certified dispensers;

      (10) The typical practice of charging significantly higher prices [typically charged] for full-service fuel dispensing in states where self-service is permitted at retail:

      (a) [Discriminate] Discriminates against customers with lower incomes, who are under greater economic pressure to subject themselves to the inconvenience and hazards of self-service;

      (b) [Discriminate] Discriminates against customers who are elderly or handicapped who are unable to serve themselves and so must pay the significantly higher prices; and

      (c) Increases self-service dispensing and thereby decreases maintenance checks by attendants, which results in neglect of maintenance, [which endangers] endangering both the customer and other motorists and [results] resulting in unnecessary and costly repairs;

      (11) The increased use of self-service at retail in other states has contributed to diminishing the availability of automotive repair facilities at gasoline stations;

      (12) Self-service dispensing at retail in other states does not provide a sustained reduction in fuel prices charged to customers;

      (13) A general prohibition of self-service dispensing of Class 1 flammable liquids by the general public promotes public welfare by providing increased safety and convenience without causing economic harm to the public in general;

      (14) Self-service dispensing at retail contributes to unemployment, particularly among young people;

      (15) Self-service dispensing at retail presents a health hazard and unreasonable discomfort to the handicapped, to elderly persons, small children and those susceptible to respiratory diseases;

      (16) The federal Americans with Disabilities Act, Public Law 101-336, requires that equal access be provided to disabled persons at retail gasoline stations; and

      (17) Small children left unattended when customers leave to make payment at retail self-service stations creates a dangerous situation.

      NOTE: Corrects grammar and syntax in (10).

      SECTION 161. ORS 497.132 is amended to read:

      497.132. (1) In lieu of issuing to resident persons separate licenses for angling and hunting, the State Fish and Wildlife Commission is authorized to issue resident annual combination angling and hunting licenses, and charge therefor a fee of $24.25.

      (2)(a) In lieu of issuing to resident persons separate licenses and tags for various hunting and angling activities, the commission is authorized to issue resident annual [sportsman's] sportsperson's licenses and shall charge therefor a fee of $100.

      (c) Notwithstanding any other provision of the wildlife laws, of the moneys received from the sale of [sportsman's] sportsperson's licenses:

      (A) Two dollars from each such license shall be credited to the subaccount referred to in ORS 496.242.
