(1) The equipment pool operated by the forester and the State Board of Forestry, which furnishes transportation and equipment for the various activities and programs of the board, is for the acquisition, operation, storage, maintenance and replacement of equipment. Notwithstanding any other law, the forester, under the direction of the board, may:
(a) Determine each activity or program of the board that shall participate in the equipment pool, and in so doing, cause the transfer of moneys from the account representing such activity or program in an amount determined advisable for equipment pool purposes. However, in each instance the transfer of moneys must be based on the proportionate use of the equipment pool, or the proposed use thereof, by the activity or program.
(b) Transfer equipment to the equipment pool, which items of transfer are owned by the State of Oregon and under the jurisdiction of the board or forester. In such event the records shall reveal the cash value of the transferred items as of the date of the transfer.
(2) Forest protective associations or agencies under contract or cooperative agreement with the board pursuant to ORS 477.406 may, with the approval of the board, participate in the equipment pool for the purposes of the contract or agreement. Participation by such an association or agency shall be on the same basis as an activity or program of the board that participates in the equipment pool.
