Statement of Issues:
(1) Did the interpretation by the Court of Appeals of the statutory phrase "leasehold interest" in ORS 656.027(15) depart from the text of the statute by incorporating a requirement that the leasehold interest must be transferable?

(2) Did the Court of Appeals erroneously rely on its interpretation of a provision of unemployment compensation law in determining that a "leasehold interest" under ORS 656.027(15) includes a requirement that the interest be transferable?

(3) Does the legislative history of ORS 656.027(15) support the Court of Appeals' interpretation that provision?
