  • rules

(1) For the purpose of revising the amounts of the limitation on joint and several liability described in ORS 58.185 (Liabilities of employees, shareholders and the corporation) (5) and (8) to reflect the effects of inflation or deflation, the Secretary of State shall multiply the amounts under ORS 58.185 (Liabilities of employees, shareholders and the corporation) (5) and (8) by the inflation factor described in this section every six years. The six-year cycle shall begin January 1, 1994. The Secretary of State shall round the amount to the nearest $50,000 and publish the revised amount as a rule not later than February 1 following the end of the six-year cycle. The revised limitation shall take effect February 1 and apply for the next six years.

(2) For purposes of this section:

(a) The inflation factor shall be a number determined by dividing the June 30 Consumer Price Index immediately preceding the calendar year in which the adjustment shall take effect by the December 31 Consumer Price Index for 1993.

(b) The "Consumer Price Index" is the Portland Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for All Items, using the 1982-1984 base of 100, as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States Department of Labor. If the index is discontinued or no longer published at least semiannually, the Secretary of State shall select an alternative index that, in the discretion of the Secretary of State, reasonably approximates changes in consumer spending power in the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area.
