Oregon Statutes - Chapter 366 - State Highways and State Highway Fund - Section 366.508 - Legislative findings.

(1) The Legislative Assembly finds that:

(a) Estimated highway, road and street revenues from current sources will not adequately meet the need for continued development of a statewide road and bridge system that is economically efficient, provides accessibility to and from commercial, agricultural, industrial, tourist and recreational facilities and enhances the highway safety, environmental quality and land use goals of this state;

(b) Responsibility for the cost of the highway, road and street system should be proportional and should be based on the number and types of vehicles that use the system and on the frequency of their use; and

(c) Expansion, modernization, maintenance, repair, reconstruction, increased capacity and enhanced safety on all roads and bridges is crucial to the economic revitalization of Oregon.

(2) The Legislative Assembly declares that the purpose of this section and ORS 319.020, 319.530, 366.507, 366.739, 366.774, 366.790, 825.476 and 825.480 is:

(a) To enhance the revenue base for the state, counties and cities for continued development and maintenance of the road and bridge system; and

(b) To enhance the revitalization of this state’s economy by implementing a long-term plan for the state, counties and cities that establishes priorities for road and bridge improvements. [1987 c.899 §1]
