The legislature occasionally skips outline levels.
(3) A person may apply [...]
(4)(a) A person petitioning for relief [...]
In this example, (3), (4),
and (4)(a) are all outline levels, but
omitted its authors. It's only implied. This presents an
interesting challenge when laying out the text. We've
decided to display a blank section with this note, in order
to aide readability.
The ORS is published every two years. Each edition incorporates all laws,
and changes to laws, enacted by the Legislative Assembly through the
odd-numbered year regular session referenced in the volume titles for that
The 2021 Edition does not include changes to the law enacted during the
2021 second special session and the 2022 regular session of the Eighty-first
Legislative Assembly. Changes to the law by the 2021 second special session
and the 2022 regular session will be reflected in the 2023 Edition of Oregon
Revised Statutes. . . .
The 2023 Edition will be available online in early 2024.
