congratulating everyone on a great year. I also wanted to briefly jump up on a soap box and encourage every one of us on a personal level. While “busy” is great (it pays the bills), we need to hold fast to that anchor that keeps us from getting swept out to the ocean by that current we call “busy”. The anchor is what makes us happy as people. Whether that anchor is - your loved ones, religion, community service, or just your quiet times doing what you love to do most - don’t forget to hold tight to those things and keep them a priority. Those are the things that are lasting and will be around when we are not as busy as we are now or as busy as we want to be. Looking forward to 2019… I suspect that we will all have the opportunity for a great 2019. As we head into a new year, I hope we can all look for ways that we can contribute or help the HBA of Marion and Polk Counties and our home builder’s community as a whole. I know that there will be some very important issues that could affect us directly coming up in the next legislative session and in our communities. This coming year you can expect a call for help at some point. Whether that is monetary or volunteering time, it will all be very important. I can’t wait to see who steps up and answers the call! Thank you again for the chance to serve and I look forward to working alongside everyone in our membership in the coming year to ensure that we are able to do what we do best. Building great homes for the people of our community that are not only affordable but a place to live in and create memories.

Ready For The Session OHBA chief Hack works to promote housing issues By James Day
The Oregon Legislature has been busy focusing extraordinary attention to housing issues in recent years, In the 2016 short session the Legislature passed measures that allowed cities and counties to impose a construction excise tax and use inclusionary zoning (which seeks to mandate affordable units in developments) and sought to limit voter-approved annexations of land. The big bill in the 2017 session was SB 1051, which: • Restricts the ability of local government to reduce the density or building height of a housing project below that which the developer applied for. • Requires clear and objective approval standards for all housing zones and requires that developments be approved if they meet those standards. • Limits the use of design and other discretionary approval standards. • Requires cities to allow accessory dwelling units in all single-family zones. Jodi Hack, chief executive officer of the Oregon Home Builders Association, is hoping for more activity in the long session that begins in January.
6 | The Chalkline | Winter 2018
“The goal is to support and pass legislation that incites action to affect change that provides opportunities for homeownership,” Hack told Chalkline. “We advocate to shape housing policy with builder perspective and work toward solutions on emerging issues. We all know we have a shortage of homes across Oregon, and without pro-housing legislation we will never move the dial.” Hack said the package of housing measures she has been working on with House Speaker Tina Kotek includes addressing local barriers to affordable housing, Goal 10 accountability, a regional housing needs analysis and local jurisdiction accountability. Goal 10, one of 19 statewide goals, asks that cities inventory their “buildable lands” or land that is inside an urban growth boundary that is suitable and available for residential use. Hack, who previously represented District 19 in the Oregon House, took over as CEO of the OHBA in December, 2017. Because of her legislative ties she was not able to participate in the 2018 session. “My ‘stand down’ period, which was only for the short session, ended (in March),” she said. “I had no challenges in terms of being inactive. Honestly, it gave me time to travel across the state to meet with local members and
gain much-needed perspective. I took that time to better understand and to get to know the ins and outs of the association. Even though I had to stand down, the timeline was short enough that I really never felt like I left the ‘arena,’ so getting back into the swing of things was not difficult.” Hack has set up a pair of information-gathering legislative roundtables. The first was held Oct. 25. The second is Dec. 20 at noon via Zoom video conferencing (to participate reach out to Mary Richards at email@example.com).
“The purpose of the roundtables is to engage members on legislative issues we are facing and how we are working on their behalf.”
“The legislative roundtables are open to ALL members across the state,” Hack said. “We have participants from as far east as Hermiston to Medford and Klamath Falls. The purpose of the roundtables is to engage members on legislative issues we are facing and how we are working on their behalf. It’s important that they have a platform on which they can be updated on issues and ask questions and give feedback.” Hack noted that she also wants to work on issues such as tax reform, family leave, cap and trade and overtime. “Our association members are business owners – tax reform, cap and trade, and issues relating to human resources like paid family leave and overtime affect their bottom line,” she said. “All of these issues are important to them, so they are important to us and guide the work we do.” Hack also said that her background in the Legislature will help her represent the building industry. “I think my role as a legislator gave me a perspective I would not otherwise have,” she said. “I will now have been on both sides of the door. I built very strong relationships with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle. I feel those relationships will be a positive asset moving forward.”

Noise And Hearing Loss Prevention Noise Controls Occupational safety and health professionals use the Hierarchy of Control to determine how to implement feasible and effective controls. This approach groups actions by their likely effectiveness in reducing or removing the noise hazard.
Hierarchy of Controls Most Effective
But Quiet Equipment and tools
Elimination Or Substitution In most cases, the preferred approach is to eliminate the source of hazardous noise. When elimination is not possible, substitution of the loud equipment for quieter equipment may be the next best alternative to protect workers from hazardous noise.
Engineering and Administrative Controls To the extent feasible, engineering controls, administrative controls, and work practices shall be used to ensure that workers are not exposed to noise at or above 85 dBA as an 8-hour TWA. Engineering controls require physical changes to the workplace such as redesigning equipment to eliminate noise sources and constructing barriers that prevent noise from reaching a worker. If engineering controls are not feasible, employers an explore potential administrative controls, such as scheduling that will minimize exposure, providing quiet and convenient lunch and break areas.
Physically remove the hazard
Eliminate the Noise
Replace the hazard
Control the Noise Hazard
Isolate people from the hazard
Exposure Time Limits Least Effective
Change the way people work
Protect the worker with Personal Protective Equipment
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) When all options for eliminating or reducing the noise at the source are exhausted, hearing protection devices such as earplugs or earmuffs should be made available to workers, at no cost, to sufficiently attenuate noise so that their “real-world” exposure is below 85 dBA as an 8-hour TWA.

Preparation Underway for 2019 Legislative Session As we look toward the 2019 legislative session there are several issues we will be watching and working on your behalf. On the forefront will be the package of housing legislation proposed with the help of our members and Oregon Speaker of the House Tina Kotek.
STATE ASSOCIATION UPDATE Jodi Hack, CEO
Our leaders roundtable group and myself met with the Speaker Kotek and her housing staff member ealier this summer. We were able to articulate housing concerns directly to her. Stemming partly from that meeting, a package of housing legislation is slated for the 2019 session. Highlights include: addressing local barriers to affordable housing, Goal 10 accountability, regional housing needs analysis, local jurisdiction accountability and more. We will continue to work on the legislative concepts throughout the next couple of months fine tuning and preparing them for primetime. I will be holding a couple of legislative roundtable updates in the next couple of months. The first legislative roundtable update was held on Oct. 25 and the second will be on Dec. 20 at noon via Zoom video conferencing. If youâ€™d like to participate , please reach out to Mary Richards at firstname.lastname@example.org. Other legislative agendas moving forward into the 2019 session include: Tax Reform, Paid Family Leave, Wage Theft, Carbon (aka Cap and Trade), revisions to Pay Equity and Allowable Overtime. We are at the table working on your behalf in all of these areas. Thank you for your continued support and thank you for the opportunity we each have been given here at the OHBA!

Codes/Legislative/Regulatory Issues Wetlands Urban Interface Code Change/Fire Mitigation Appendix W Update
The Oregon Building Codes Division (BCD) has asked that OHBA analyze the new building code elements that the Appendix W includes with a focus on product availability, conflicts with current code and cost for the following areas: roof, walls, venting limitations and/or requirements (attic/eaves), Metal doors and windows, decks, others as identified. BCD asked the Oregon State Fire Marshall to work with local fire officials to address the in-fill matter so that if Appendix W moves forward in a modified manner it is not applicable to in-fill lots. BCD is also looking at language that would help clarify the in-fill concern focusing on the up-front planning and subdivision approval stage so that we avoid application of the new code for in-fill homes. The adoption would then only apply to new construction.
Third Party Inspectors
Due to a recent Oregon Department of Justice opinion, building permits issued by smaller cities and counties that use private Third-Party Building Officials/Inspectors may not be constitutional, throwing the validity of countless building permits into question. Along with other trade organizations we have sought legal advice and are now awaiting the state Attorney Generalâ€™s formal legal opinion. We are working toward a remedy as we await the opinion.
A Voice at the Capitol
Workgroups, taskforces, coalitions and rulemaking are in full swing, and we are at the table working on behalf of our members.
Rural ADUs The Rural Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) workgroup has met and is in discussion regarding potential legislative sideboards on the authorization to allow ADUs in areas zoned rural residential with authority for counties to further condition the ADUs. A Legislative Counsel draft for legislation has been proposed with changes pending. Areas that have been heavily debated include: short-term rentals, owner occupancy, siting ADUs in wildfire risk areas, 2-acre minimums, sq. ft. limits, septic issues and cumulative impacts, and balancing statewide standards vs. discretionary authority for counties to set standards.
Workforce & Education: The Joint Committee on Student Success has completed a majority of their legislative listening tours. The committee provided a public forum to focus on needed services and desired outcomes in our K-12 education system which will result in a push for more revenue. The committee has formed three work groups for policy discussions on: Students Ready and Able to Learn; College and Career Ready; and High Quality Classrooms.
Business interests and union groups were asked for four options. Work begins now on comparisons of the proposals.
Energy & Environment A Joint Interim Committee on Carbon Reduction – This issue continues to be a hot topic. We are at the table and continue to be engaged. The Governor’s Carbon Policy Office released a request for proposal for the macroeconomic study (Carbon Policy Economics Study) on the impact of a carbon policy in Oregon. More to come on this.. Wetland Mitigation Rulemaking is underway. Four of the five work sessions have been completed. Draft rules are in the works. We are at the table to work to ensure the rulemaking reflects what’s best for our members. The Cleaner Air Oregon (CAO) Rulemaking Advisory Committee met in May - focusing on rules and fiscal issues. Comments were submitted in August and business has made incremental gains, we hope to gain additional improvements in the final rule which the DEQ presents to Environmental Quality Commission in November.
Each workgroup has specific goals and deadlines. Final recommendations were scheduled for presentation Nov. 8. The Education and Workforce Development Steering Committee is running, meetings July 12 and Sept. 11.
Business & Labor
Tabitha L. Solberg
Rulemaking for pay equity began in June. We are awaiting the posting of the proposed rules and notice. Rulemaking is in process with the Workers’ Compensation Division regarding workers who are injured on the job but have multiple jobs. More to come on this issue. The Paid Family Leave workgroup continues to gather information relating to legislation for the 2019 session.
