(2) The Oregon Health Authority shall adopt rules identifying duties under ORS 446.310 (Definitions for ORS 446.310 to 446.350) to 446.350 (Tourist Facility Account) that a landlord may contractually delegate to a tenant for the term of the rental or lease of a tourist facility. The authority may adopt rules specifying the form and format to be used in a contract under which a landlord delegates a duty to a tenant, including but not limited to the manner of setting forth the delegated duty.

(3) Notwithstanding ORS 446.320 (Tourist facility license required), if a contract delegates a duty identified in authority rules adopted under subsection (2) of this section and the contract form and format conforms with any specifications of the authority, the authority may not deny, suspend or revoke the tourist facility license of the landlord or issue the landlord a civil penalty under ORS 446.310 (Definitions for ORS 446.310 to 446.350) to 446.350 (Tourist Facility Account), and the landlord may not be charged with a misdemeanor under ORS 446.990 (Penalties), due to:

(4) Subsection (3) of this section does not apply if the failure of a tenant to properly perform a delegated duty during the term of a rental or lease is due to a tourist facility condition already existing at the beginning of the term and constituting a nonconformance with ORS 446.310 (Definitions for ORS 446.310 to 446.350) to 446.350 (Tourist Facility Account) or authority rules.
