2009 - 2011 Legislatively Adopted Budget
Oregon's budget development process occurs in three major phases: Agency Request, Governor's Recommended Budget and Legislatively Adopted Budget.
For the 2009-2011 budget cycle, the Governor's budget team developed the Governor's Recommended Budget by December 2008, and presented it to the Legislature at the start of the next calendar year (January 2009). Legislative committees reviewed the proposed budget and held public hearings to gather information from agencies and the public. Each budget bill included a Budget Report that described the committees' recommendations. The Legislature voted on each budget bill. When the bills received the Governor's approval, they became law and comprised the Legislatively Adopted Budget. Agencies are now in the process of administering the budget over the current two-year budget period (through June 2011).
Between legislative sessions, the Legislative Emergency Board can make some changes to the budget. The Governor may also call Legislature into special emergency sessions to deal with budget issues. The Legislatively Adopted Budget and the changes made during the biennium make up the Legislatively Approved Budget.
