  • purpose of chapter

(1) The Legislative Assembly finds and declares that:

(a) It is in the interest of all the people that the abundant natural resources of Oregon be protected, fully developed and uniformly distributed.

(b) The growing of wheat is an agricultural industry that contributes to the economic welfare of Oregon.

(c) Because a surplus of wheat is grown in this state and, during recurrent years, that surplus has been in excess of all available markets, it is necessary that additional markets for wheat be found in order to provide profitable enterprises for wheat growers and to provide employment for labor and industry dependent upon wheat.

(2) The purpose of this chapter is to promote the public health and welfare by providing means for the protection and stabilization of the wheat industry in this state. [Amended by 2003 c.604 §87]
