(2)(a) Except as provided in paragraph (d) of this subsection, any livestock auction market license shall expire on the June 30 next succeeding the date of grant of the license, provided that at any time during the quarter preceding June 30 the department may receive, consider and grant an application for a renewal license (including a renewal application filed concurrently with an application for a new license) effective on July 1 and expiring on the next succeeding June 30.

(b) Application for renewal of a license required by ORS 599.401 (Livestock auction market license required) shall be filed upon forms provided by the department and shall contain the information required in subsection (1)(a), (b), (c) and (g) of this section, and if applicant has altered or remodeled facilities of the applicant or plans to do so, the application shall also contain the information required in subsection (1)(d) of this section.
