Proposed Rule Adoption for Organizational Camps​, OAR 333-030

The Oregon Health Authority (Authority), Public Health Division, Food, Pool, and Lodging Program is proposing to permanently amend and adopt rules in chapter 333, division 30 to implement House Bill (HB) 3292 (OL 2015, chapter 223), passed during the 2015 Oregon Legislative Session, relating to organizational camps. House Bill 3292 changed ORS chapter 446 to clarify that camp owners must obtain a license to operate but camp user groups are responsible for compliance with the rules. The bill authorized the Authority to adopt rules identifying duties that a landlord may delegate through a contract to tenants.  Read the Interested Party Letter, the Public Meeting Notice, the Statement of Need and Fiscal Impact and the draft rules.
