Legislative Counsel have created an ORS Archives website where they will be posting the 1953-1997 ORS. Currently the 1953-1957 statutes have been posted to the website:
Oregon Revised Statutes (ORS): 1953-1997 Archives
Remaining statutes will be posted as time allows and the Constitutions, Indexes, Prefaces, etc. will be added after all of the statutes have all been posted.
This has been and continues to be a laborious process and Legislative Counsel have been making steady progress – so tell your Legislators to thank their Legislative Counsel staff for this work! It will save legislators, lawyers, legal researchers, law librarians, and clients both time and money.
(We had the easy work (relatively speaking) and “just” did the Gutbuster scanning; they had to contend with the Oregon Legislature’s bureaucracy. Oh my.)
