(2) No person shall be estopped or precluded from challenging the constitutionality or validity of any provision of chapter 449, Oregon Laws 1997, or the provisions of chapter 873, Oregon Laws 1999, as a result of having received or sought benefits under, complied with, paid fees under or filed an application under those statutes, or as a result of having participated in their drafting, enactment or implementation.

(3) Nothing in this section shall be construed to imply that a person is estopped or precluded from challenging the validity or constitutionality of any statute as a result of having participated in the drafting, enactment or implementation of the legislation that resulted in the enactment of such statute. [1999 c.873 §29]

Specific ORS references have not been substituted, pursuant to 173.160 (Powers and duties of Legislative Counsel in preparing editions for publication). The sections for which substitution otherwise would be made may be determined by referring to the 1999 Comparative Section Table located in Volume 20 of ORS.
