Administrative Rules to Implement ORS 184.612(3)


No appointee may have a direct or indirect financial or fiduciary interest at the time of appointment by the Governor. A direct or indirect fiduciary interest may be eliminated prior to the Governor’s appointment by the potential appointee resigning the fiduciary role which creates the direct or indirect fiduciary interest, by modifying the scope of the fiduciary role so that it no longer creates a direct or indirect fiduciary interest, or by other action by the appointee.


When a commissioner is met with a conflict, the commissioner shall declare the conflict on the record at a public meeting of the commission and abstain from participating in the commission’s deliberations or voting on the matter giving rise to the conflict.


A commissioner is not required to announce a conflict more than once on the occasion giving rise to the conflict.


The commission may divide an agenda item into separate matters in order to enable a commissioner with a declared conflict to deliberate and vote on those matters for which the commissioner does not have a conflict.


Commission public meeting minutes must record all declarations of conflict made by members of the commission.
(6) The obligations imposed by this rule are in addition to, not in lieu of, obligations that apply to commissioners under the Oregon Government Ethics Law, ORS 244.010 (Policy) to 244.400 (Possibility of attorney fees for person prevailing in contested case).
