How Rules Get Made
Administrative rules in Oregon are made by state agencies. Each agency website will contain information about its rulemaking process. Consider also browsing the OARs by agency name. From there you can view rule sections, and use the "control F" function on your computer keyboard to look for keywords in different rule sections. This can lead you to different rules that may apply to the legislation you are researching.
