First, I'd like to thank David Brandt-Erichsen for posting the text of 
Oregon's PROP 16.

The law charges the Health Department with implementation, so I phoned them
for more info. I was told that they have to have their regulations written 
by December 8th, when the law takes effect. Here in Oregon, the State 
Coroner's Department is a part of the Health Department. They said they 
didn't think autopsies were going to be required, as they already feel they 
have enough safeguards in place. The individual I spoke with didn't seem to 
have much of a problem with cryonics, either.

I was also told that they have a lot of meetings yet to come on this subject, 
and that the final word won't be out until December. It seems their biggest
problem is what to check on the death certificate for cause of death! :-)

Ever forward,
