Temporary letter of authority on change of ownership
  • fee
  • revocation

(1) The Oregon Liquor Control Commission may grant a temporary letter of authority for a period not to exceed 90 days on change of ownership applications for licenses granted under this chapter if the applicant pays the fee prescribed by the commission for a temporary letter of authority. The administrator appointed by the commission under ORS 471.720 (Administrator) may extend a temporary letter of authority granted under the provisions of this section for a period not to exceed 30 days if the commission has not granted or denied the application at the end of the 90-day period. A temporary letter of authority issued under this section does not constitute a license for the purposes of ORS chapter 183.

(2) The commission summarily and without prior administrative proceedings may revoke a temporary letter of authority any time if the commission finds that any of the grounds for refusing a license under ORS 471.313 (Grounds for refusing to issue license) or canceling or suspending a license under ORS 471.315 (Grounds for cancellation or suspension of license or imposition of civil penalty) exist.

(3) A person subject to subsection (2) of this section shall be given an interview under the direction of the commission if the person requests an interview prior to revocation of a temporary letter of authority. However, the proceedings are not a contested case under ORS chapter 183. [1987 c.511 §5; 1995 c.301 §59; 1999 c.351 §47; 2003 c.337 §3]
