Revenue Resources


A variety of revenue sources fund the operation of our state government. 

The state budget allocates all revenue resources including General Fund, Lottery, Federal, and Other Funds that pay for public services. The budget may also authorize debt financing for projects and activities.

Oregon's Budget Process

  1. Agency Request Budget: Agencies start the budget early in even-numbered years to develop their Agency Request Budget.
  2. Governor's Recommended Budget: The Governor and the Chief Financial Officer review the budget requests. They use the Governor’s priorities, budget policies, and current law to make budget decisions. The Governor’s Recommended Budget document summarizes those decisions.
  3. Legislatively Adopted Budget: Once the Governor's Recommended Budget is received, legislative committees review the proposed budget. They hold public hearings to request feedback from each agency and the public. The Legislature votes on each budget bill. The budget bills that are enacted into law make up the Legislatively Adopted Budget.
