Oregon Statutes - Chapter 526 - Forestry Administration - Section 526.233 - Application of antitrust laws.

The Legislative Assembly intends that ORS 526.237 and the amendments to ORS 526.235 by section 4, chapter 541, Oregon Laws 2005, authorize the displacement of competition in the forest tree seedling industry to a limited degree. The regulatory program of the State Forester described in ORS 526.237 is intended to grant immunity from state and federal antitrust laws to a cooperative and its members that enter into an agreement with the forester or the State Board of Forestry for the members to produce nonindustrial private forest tree seedlings for the forester and the board. The activities that any person performs in compliance with ORS 526.237 may not be considered in restraint of trade, a conspiracy or combination or any other unlawful activity in violation of ORS 646.705 to 646.805 or federal antitrust laws. [2005 c.541 §2]

Note: See note under 526.231.
