The Department of Geology and Mineral Industries is proposing amendments to Or. Admin. R. 632-030-0025 regarding mine reclamation.  The amendments would require all materials used as fill in mine reclamation meet Department of Environmental Quality guidelines or be specifically permitted. Changes would also require written reclamation plans and that fill material is consistent with local land use regulations. A public hearing will be held on November 18, 2014, and the deadline for comment is December 2, 2014. See http://arcweb.sos.state.or.us/pages/rules/bulletin/1114_bulletin/1114_rulemaking_bulletin.html
