CHECK DIVERSION PROGRAM DISCONTINUED
Senate Bill 525, passed during the 2013 Oregon Legislative Regular Session, makes changes to ORS 135.925 and 646.639. The changes make it more difficult and resource-intensive for Oregon District Attorney's offices to use bad check diversion programs like "Bounceback". The legislative changes also appear to put some longstanding check programs at odds with the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, as the new law refers to "the practice of collecting debt, including restitution". Restitution for damages caused by criminal behavior, including Negotiating Bad-Checks, has not previously been described as "debt collection", so it has not been subject to time and resource consuming requirements of the federal Act. Collectively, these changes to Oregon law make it impossible for Lane County to continue our Check Diversion Program.
