ORS 272.060
Federal migratory bird refuges


For the purpose of more effectively cooperating with the United States in the acquisition, development and maintenance of refuges for migratory wild fowl as provided in the Migratory Bird Conservation Act (45 Stat. 1222, 16 U.S.C. 715 to 715r), as amended, permission is granted to the United States to acquire by purchase, gift or lease, lands and waters which the Secretary of the Interior of the United States may deem necessary and suitable for the purposes provided in such Act.


Jurisdiction of the State of Oregon, both civil and criminal, over persons upon areas acquired under this section shall not be affected or changed by reason of their acquisition and administration by the United States as migratory bird reservations, except so far as the punishment of offenses against the United States is concerned.


Nothing in this section is intended to interfere with the operation of the laws of the State of Oregon applying to migratory game birds insofar as they do not permit what is forbidden by federal law. [Amended by 1967 c.421 §187]
