Rule Summary:
This rulemaking proposes amendments to accommodate changes at the federal level to Rule 504 and 505 and to simplify small capital raises. The proposed changes would repeal Oregon's rule (OAR 441-065-0230) implementing Rule 505, and update the offering limits of the SCOR to correspond to the new $5 million federal limit for Rule 504 offerings.

In addition, the proposed rulemaking would revise the existing OAR 441-065-0220 process to adopt a Small Offering Abbreviated Registration (SOAR) allowing for a quick registration, without audited financials for Rule 504 offerings up to $1 million. The proposal to restructure the small offering rule is based on a finding that the current rule has been used five times since 2007 (out of a total of 969 registrations) and all but one of the filings has been cancelled or withdrawn.
