2017 ORS 530.130¹
Issuance of revenue bonds to acquire lands

(1) In compliance with the applicable provisions of ORS chapter 286A, the State Board of Forestry may request the State Treasurer to issue the revenue bonds described in ORS 530.140 (Forest development revenue bonds) to acquire any lands as provided in ORS 530.010 (State Board of Forestry authorized to acquire lands) and to sell revenue bonds under ORS 530.140 (Forest development revenue bonds) in the manner the State Treasurer deems advisable. The net proceeds derived from the sale of the revenue bonds, after the payment of bond-related costs, shall be paid into the State Treasury and credited to the State Forestry Department Account to be used exclusively for the purpose of acquiring lands as provided by ORS 530.010 (State Board of Forestry authorized to acquire lands) and 530.025 (Interests in acquired lands). The State Forestry Department may establish one or more subaccounts, as it determines are desirable for administration of the net proceeds, in the State Forestry Department Account.

(2) Subject to any management plan adopted under ORS 526.905 (Management plans or policies to reduce risk of loss of forest resources) for the lands, the board may make covenants related to the operation, use and sale of, or revenues derived from, lands acquired with proceeds of the revenue bonds that the board determines after consultation with the State Treasurer to be necessary or desirable for repayment of the bonds.

(3) Any lands proposed to be acquired under subsection (1) of this section shall be appraised by the State Board of Forestry and the appraisal shall be approved by the Department of State Lands prior to the acquisition of the lands. [Amended by 1957 c.83 §15; 1959 c.209 §1; 1975 c.614 §17; 1981 c.660 §43; 2007 c.783 §213; 2009 c.831 §13]

Notes of Decisions

Where county transferred forest land that it could have kept and administered for its own benefit to state “in considera­tion of the pay­ment to the county of the percentage of revenue derived from such lands,” county is entitled to enforce that claim and state cannot avoid its obliga­tion to county by conveying the prop­erty to third per­son.
