(3) Notwithstanding subsections (1) and (2) of this section, the department may enter into a license for the removal of material from submersible and submerged lands of navigable streams owned by the State of Oregon based on a competitive market rate that reflects fair market value.

(4) The department shall, prior to any competitive bidding notice, establish prebid qualifications that include but are not limited to the following:

(a) The minimum yardage amount of material that must be removed for each year for which the lease is valid.

(b) Evidence that all bidders have an established market, as provided by each bidder. [Amended by 1961 c.509 §2; 1961 c.676 §3; 1967 c.421 §144; 1967 c.567 §§15, 15a; 1971 c.509 §1; 1995 c.113 §1]
