(1) In determining the amount of benefits for which an applicant is eligible, the Public Safety Memorial Fund Board shall:
(a) Consider the facts stated in the initial application filed under ORS 243.958 or the supplemental application filed under ORS 243.959;
(b) Consider the amount of funds available for benefit awards, as provided in the current biennial board budget approved by the Legislative Assembly or the Emergency Board, and the anticipated claims against those funds; and
(c) Award the resultant amount to the applicant as provided in ORS 243.956.
(2) In determining the amount of an award to be made to an applicant, the board may consider the number and type of claims filed and the number and type of claims anticipated to be filed with the board during the current biennial budget period. If the board determines that insufficient funds will be available during the current biennial budget period to pay all approved and anticipated claims, the board may prioritize claims or prorate the amounts awarded based upon the anticipated available funds. The board’s decision to prioritize claims or prorate the amounts awarded is not subject to administrative or judicial review, including review under ORS 243.966. [1999 c.981 §8; 2003 c.295 §4]
