These reformatted rules are provided as a free service to the people of Oregon by OregonPEN.org. They are necessary only because the official rules are so terribly formatted and impossible to use. [Choose any chapter of the official rules and find what a struggle they are to use (http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/pages/rules/access/numerically.html).] However, these are not the official rules, so the burden is on you to make sure that the rules you are interested are current. We recommend starting and reading the rules in this clear, clean format, but also checking the same rules in the official format (again, at http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/pages/rules/access/numerically.html) to be sure that the rules have not been revised. These rules were last updated as of 22 September 2015. Some revisions are made to the official rules every month, so you see that it is important to check the official rules too.
