SB 88 Housing Relating to accessory dwelling units. Allows counties to authorize construction of accessory dwelling units on lands zoned for rural

residential use.
Tagged Passions:rural, construction, zoning, and housing

1 TBD LC 3680 which combines the provisions of SB 88 with the statewide wildfire risk mapping concept would impact the bill as follows: 1) No ADUs

outside of RFPDs (no change from previous versions); 2) No defensible space is required outside of ODF's protection districts (significant change from previous versions) (note, east of Sisters, Cloverdale, greater Redmond, Tumalo, north and east of Bend there would be no defensible space required); 3) I assume the intent is to require all ADUs to be built to the standard in R327 until Consumer and Business Services completes a map showing where R327 would/wouldn't be required for ADUS (in 2021). However, my reading of Section 2 (2) (L) of page 2, lines 28 and 29 of the legislative concept would be that unless a County has adopted a Wildfire Hazard Zone to identify the qualifying lots of record , R-327 is not applicable. My suggestion would be that this is clarified. If they want to require that buildings are built to the code then Section 2 (2)(L) might read: The accessory dwelling unit complies with the Oregon residential specialty code R327.4.2 through R327.4.8:. If they want counties to determine where the code applies, they can refer to the entire code as written, but it would still be good to have that clarified. One other item of note: If R327 applies to ADUs, I would assume that existing, non- permitted ADUs would be difficult to grandfather in without significant alteration. This is not an issue with the LC, but something I've heard come up in other conversations. (EK 2/26/19)

SB 365 Marijuana Relating to marijuana; declaring an emergency. Prohibits local governments from imposing system development charge on projects

related to production, processing or retailing of marijuana items. Allows premises used for marijuana production to continue to be used for marijuana production if premises was first licensed prior to city or county prohibition on marijuana production. Clarifies that supervision, diversion or release conditions related to marijuana must be imposed in same manner as supervision, diversion or release conditions related to prescription drugs. Declares emergency, effective on passage.

1 Oppose SDCs are fees charged to new development to offset the cost of growth to infrastructure required by growth. Deschutes County charges SDCs to

MJ grow operations. This bill will prohibit Deschutes County from collecting SDCs from MJ grow operations, thereby transferring the cost of their transportation impact to existing taxpayers. This bill exempts farm use (not just MJ) from SDCs, however the reality is that farm use in Deschutes County is dictated by irrigation water rights which have been allocated for decades and no farm use will develop that is not currently in farm use - with the exception of MJ. This bill is specifically targeting Deschutes County's practice. Passage of this bill will cost Deschutes County over 1M in revenue to mitigate the impact of MJ related traffic added to the transportation system via the 60+ grow operations throughout Deschutes County.

Extends Oregon Reinsurance Program and authorizes Department of Consumer and Business Services to request extension of waiver for state innovation.

Authorizes department to change attachment point or coinsurance rate for program under specified conditions. Extends to 2026 and increases to two percent assessment on earnings from health plan premiums and payments by Oregon Health Authority to managed care organizations and includes health care stop loss coverage as subject to assessment.

Tagged Passions:funding, health, business, hospital, services, program, health insurance, healthcare, and university

2 Oppose The bill would create a new assessment on the stop- loss reinsurance policies paid by self-insurers. As a self-insured entity that purchases

stop-loss reinsurance, the new 2 assessment (likely applying to the premium) is estimated to result in a 9,115 assessment to Deschutes County. Although the 2 assessment results in a relative low cost to Deschutes County, there are concerns that once this new assessment is created, it may increase in future years. An alternative to opposing the bill, Deschutes County could propose an amendment to the bill that would exclude local governments from the assessment.
