Relating to county assessment function funding assistance
  payments; and declaring an emergency.

year beginning July 1, 2011, and ending June 30, 2012, a county's

does not alter the percentage to be paid to the county under ORS
294.178 (4) or the payments provided from the County Assessment
Function Funding Assistance Account under ORS 294.178 (3) if:
  (1) The revenue of the county for the previous fiscal year was
supplemented by federal payments pursuant to the Secure Rural
Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000
(P.L. 106-393) in an amount equal to at least 10 percent of the
revenue;
  (2) The reduction in county expenditures does not exceed 10
percent of the expenditures certified by the department; and
  (3) The reduction in county expenditures does not result in a
failure by the county to adequately provide the resources needed
to achieve proper compliance with ORS 308.232 and 308.234, ORS
chapter 309, other laws requiring equality and uniformity in the
system of property taxation and applicable rules of the
