The Oregon Environmental Quality Commission is a five-member panel appointed by the governor of Oregon for four-year terms to serve as the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality's policy and rulemaking board. In addition to adopting rules, the commission also establishes policies, issues orders, judges appeals of fines or other DEQactions, and appoints the DEQ director.
On February 14, the commission selected Richard Whitman to serve as DEQ's permanent director.
