Definitions for and purpose of ORS 273.805 to 273.825

(1) As used in ORS 273.805 (Definitions for and purpose of ORS 273.805 to 273.825) to 273.825 (Purchase of lands by lessee or other person), "common school grazing lands" means lands owned by the State of Oregon and under the control of the Department of State Lands that are chiefly suitable for the grazing of animals, as determined by the department, and which are within, but not limited to, the following land classifications:

(a) Lands defined by ORS 273.251 (Classification of state lands) as indemnity lands, school lands or farmlands.

(b) Lands which have escheated to the state.

(2) Nothing in ORS 273.805 (Definitions for and purpose of ORS 273.805 to 273.825) to 273.825 (Purchase of lands by lessee or other person) is intended to be an express or implied limitation upon the powers of the department to acquire, lease, manage, control or protect land pursuant to authority otherwise granted by law. ORS 273.805 (Definitions for and purpose of ORS 273.805 to 273.825) to 273.825 (Purchase of lands by lessee or other person) and 327.430 (Security for loans) are not the result of a legislative intent or belief that the department is without authority to acquire, lease, manage, protect or control common school grazing lands.
