Higher Education Coordination Commission

Legislative Summaries and Budget Documents

The Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) is responsible for developing and recommending to Oregon’s Governor a comprehensive and integrated postsecondary education and training agency budget request. This budget request is aimed to support state goals. Because Oregon state government works on a biennial budget, the Oregon Legislature makes key decisions on higher education funding every other year. On this page you can find HECC budget documents for each biennium, as well as legislative summaries for sessions in budget-setting years.

Legislative Summaries and Budget Documents

Below you can read legislative summaries that describe outcomes in postsecondary education and training for each legislative session, as well as the Agency Request Budget, Governor’s Recommended Budget, and Legislative Adopted Budget documents for the HECC. The final budget is the Legislatively Adopted Budget.

During each legislative session and continually, we work closely with many of our our partners on the budget and legislative process. The Higher Education Coordinating Commission discusses legislative policy and funding proposals, receives legislative updates, and makes decisions on the agency budget recommendation at public meetings. Public testimony is welcomed at all public meetings of the Commission.
