Budget & Legislative Information


Oregon operates under a two-year (biennium) budget process. The budget development process has three major phases:

  • Agency Request Budget: DSL begins with the previous biennium's budget, then adds, removes, or adjusts the budget based on program needs and policy responsibilities.
  • Governor's Budget: The Governor's Office and the Chief Financial Office build on and may revise the Agency Request Budget. The resulting Governor’s Budget is presented to the Legislature for consideration.
  • Legislatively Adopted Budget: Legislative committees review proposed budgets and hold public hearings before the full Legislature votes on each agency's budget.
