LC 10 Cocktails to Go (Restaurant support)
LC 10 would allow the OLCC to authorize a full on-premises sales licensee, during the declared COVID-19 pandemic state of emergency, to sell and deliver mixed drinks in sealed containers for off-premises consumption similar to beer, wine, and cider. LC 10 also limits the fees that a third-party food platform may charge a restaurant for the facilitation of customer food and beverage orders.
LC 18 Eviction Moratorium (Eviction Moratorium and Landlord Compensation Fund)
Legislative Concept 18 extends the moratorium on eviction without cause through June 30, 2021. The concept also extends the moratorium on eviction for nonpayment through June 30, 2021, for tenants who declare a hardship. It establishes a landlord compensation fund to cover rental non-payment assistance and requires landlords to inform tenants of their rights to declare a hardship to protect them from eviction for nonpayment through June 30, 2021.
LC 21 Liability Protections for Schools (Return to school efforts)
LC 21 prohibits claims for damages arising from COVID-19 infections against school districts if the school district’s act or omission was made in compliance with the Governor’s Executive Orders, rules, or other forms of guidance. The concept does not provide liability protection for activities on school grounds by someone other than the school district, nor does it prohibit causes of actions based on workers’ compensation, occupational health and safety, wage and hour laws, discrimination, retaliation, or specialized instruction laws. The measure provides whistleblower protections under Oregon law. LC 21 sets up a mechanism for an early offramp for claims that may be barred, while allowing claims that show a genuine issue of material fact to continue through the court process.
