Oregon's budget development process occurs in three major phases: Agency Request, Governor's Recommended Budget and Legislatively Adopted Budget.


For the 2013-2015 budget cycle the Governor's budget team developed the Governor's Recommended Budget and presented it to the Legislature in February 2013. 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 2015).

As the Oregon Legislature now meets annually, it can now make changes to the budget (either in full session or through the Legislative Emergency Board between legislative sessions). 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.
