The Legislative Assembly declares that it is the policy of the State of Oregon that:
(1) Each property owner, each highway user and all federal, state and local governments share the responsibility for making sound decisions regarding activities that may affect landslide hazards and the associated risks of property damage or personal injury.
(2) In keeping with the concept of shared responsibility where individuals are primarily responsible for making sound decisions to protect personal interests, regulation applied pursuant to ORS 195.250 to 195.260 shall be restricted to reducing the risk of serious bodily injury or death that may result from rapidly moving landslides.
(3) In recognition of the need for consistent treatment and coordination of actions relating to rapidly moving landslides and because of the potential for serious bodily injury or death as a result of rapidly moving landslides and the effect of rapidly moving landslides on the ability of people to use their property, ORS 195.250 to 195.260 shall be regarded as the controlling policy of this state for rapidly moving landslides. [1999 c.1103 §2]
