The penalty shall be imposed in the manner provided by ORS 183.745 (Civil penalty procedures). The board shall determine the amount of a civil penalty imposed under this section, not to exceed $5,000 for each offense. Notwithstanding ORS 670.335 (Disposition of fees received by boards), civil penalties recovered under this section shall be deposited into an account established by the board as provided under ORS 182.470 (Depository accounts for moneys collected or received by semi-independent state agencies).

The Attorney General shall bring an action in the name of the State of Oregon in a court of appropriate jurisdiction to enforce any civil penalty imposed under this section.
(2) In determining the amount of a civil penalty imposed under this section, the board may consider:
(a) The seriousness of the violation;
(b) The economic benefit to the violator resulting from the violation;
(c) Whether the violator has previously committed violations; and
(d) Other factors that the board finds appropriate. [Formerly 671.950]
