2015 ORS 576.322¹
Legislative ratification of prior actions, rules and appointments

(1) As used in this section, "commodity commission" means a commission established under ORS 576.051 (Definitions for ORS 576.051 to 576.455) to 576.455 (Moneys of abolished commission).

(2) The Legislative Assembly declares that any action taken prior to May 13, 2013, by a commodity commission having one or more members who were not properly qualified at the time to serve on the commodity commission due to rules regulating the number or geographic representation of commodity commission members is valid and lawful to the same extent that the action would have been valid and lawful if the commodity commission had at the time of the action been in conformance with rules regulating the number and geographic representation of commodity commission members.

(3) Notwithstanding ORS 576.206 (Appointment of temporary members) or 576.304 (Authority of commodity commissions) or any rules adopted under ORS 576.206 (Appointment of temporary members), the Legislative Assembly ratifies and declares valid any rule adopted by a commodity commission prior to May 13, 2013, that created, amended or abolished a rule or other requirement regulating the number or geographic representation of the commodity commission members.

(4) Notwithstanding ORS 576.206 (Appointment of temporary members) or any rules adopted under ORS 576.206 (Appointment of temporary members) regarding the number or geographic representation of commodity commission members, the Legislative Assembly ratifies and validates the appointment prior to May 13, 2013, of any commodity commission members who would have qualified for the appointment if no applicable rules regulated the number or geographic representation of the commodity commission members. This subsection does not require the reinstatement of any member removed from a commodity commission prior to May 13, 2013, for any reason. [2013 c.90 §1]
