Here's some good news for the Oregon land use system: the federal judge, Owen Panner, who ruled back in November that Measure 37 waivers in Jackson County are still valid, has issued a stay of his ruling.

So elected officials in Jackson County don't have to worry about being caught between Panner's contention that the county waivers of land use laws are still in effect, and the Department of Land Conservation and Development position that no development can take place because necessary state waivers aren't in effect.
This case is being appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Hopefully it will be overturned.
