(1) As a condition of allowing a local government to become a participating local government, and at any time thereafter, the Oregon Investment Council, the Public Employees Retirement Board or the Director of the Public Employees Retirement System may require that the local government provide proof that the local government deferred compensation plan complies with the provisions of section 457 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended, that apply to governmental plans, including but not limited to any required declaration of trust related to plan assets and appointment of a trustee. The council, board or director may require an opinion of counsel or other assurance satisfactory to the council, board or director that participation of a local government deferred compensation plan in the deferred compensation investment program does not cause the State of Oregon, its agencies or employees to violate any federal or state laws or regulations related to investments and securities.
(2) Participating local governments shall take all actions that the Oregon Investment Council, the Public Employees Retirement Board or the Director of the Public Employees Retirement System, in their discretion, deem necessary for compliance by the deferred compensation investment program with all applicable federal and state laws or for qualification of the program for any exemptions from regulation available under those laws, including but not limited to the federal Securities Act of 1933, as amended, the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and ORS chapter 59.
