About Us

The Office of Policy and Analysis coordinates with the Governor’s Office and the Oregon Legislature in biennial budget development, assessing potential legislation, and evaluating and modifying existing statues that would help DEQ better fulfill our mission to be a leader in restoring, maintaining and enhancing the quality of Oregon's air, land and water. The office also serves as the central point of contact for legislators, and their staff, to help constituents find information and assistance from the department.
