A BILL FOR AN ACT

Relating to terrorism; creating new provisions; and amending section 19, chapter 666, Oregon Laws 2001.

Be It Enacted by the People of the State of Oregon:

SECTION 1.

(1) A person commits the crime of terrorism if the person knowingly plans, participates in or carries out any act that is intended, by at least one of its participants, to disrupt:

(a) The free and orderly assembly of the inhabitants of the State of Oregon; (b) Commerce or the transportation systems of the State of Oregon; or (c) The educational or governmental institutions of the State of Oregon or its inhabitants.
(2) A person commits the crime of terrorism if the person conspires to do any of the activities described in subsection (1) of this section. (3) A person may not be convicted of terrorism except upon the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act or upon confession in open court. (4)

(a) A person convicted of terrorism shall be punished by imprisonment for life. (b) When a person is convicted of terrorism under this section, the court shall order that the person be confined for a minimum of 25 years without possibility of parole, release to post-prison supervision, release on work release or any form of temporary leave or employment at a forest or work camp. (c) At any time after completion of a minimum period of confinement pursuant to paragraph (b) of this subsection, the State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision, upon the petition of a prisoner so confined, shall hold a hearing, the sole issue of which is to determine whether the prisoner is likely to be rehabilitated within a reasonable period of time. The board shall conduct the proceeding in the manner prescribed for a contested case hearing under ORS 183.310 to 183.550 except that:

(A) The prisoner has the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence the likelihood of rehabilitation within a reasonable period of time; and (B) The prisoner has the right, if the prisoner is without sufficient funds to employ an attorney, to be represented by legal counsel, appointed by the board, at board expense.
(d) If, upon hearing all of the evidence and upon a unanimous vote of all of its members, the board finds that the prisoner is capable of rehabilitation within a reasonable amount of time and that the terms of the prisoner's confinement should be changed to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole, release to post-prison supervision or work release, the board shall enter an order to that effect and convert the terms of the prisoner's confinement to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole, release to post-prison supervision or work release and may set a release date. Otherwise, the board shall deny the relief sought in the petition. (e) Not less than two years after the denial of the relief sought in a petition under paragraph (c) of this subsection, the prisoner may petition again for a change in the terms of confinement. Further petitions for a change may be filed at intervals of not less than two years thereafter.

SECTION 2. Notwithstanding ORS 181.575 and 181.850, a law enforcement agency shall cooperate with any federal or state agency that is investigating an act of terrorism, and a law enforcement agency may retain any information relating to an investigation of terrorism as long as the investigation remains open.
