Moneys of abolished commission


(1)

Unless the Legislative Assembly orders a refund pursuant to subsection (2) of this section, if the Legislative Assembly abolishes a commodity commission, any moneys remaining in the possession of the abolished commission on the effective date of the abolishment are transferred to Oregon State University and are continuously appropriated to the university for research benefiting producers of the commodity that was subject to assessment by the abolished commission.

(2)

The Legislative Assembly may order in an Act dissolving a commodity commission that any moneys remaining in the possession of the abolished commission on the effective date of the abolishment be refunded on a proportional basis to the persons who paid assessments to the commodity commission during the assessment year in which the commodity commission was abolished. [2003 c.604 §12]
