Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is developing its budget proposal for the 2017-19 biennium through a public process involving stakeholders, customers, Commissioners, and the Governor’s Office. The department will meet with stakeholder representatives on its External Budget Advisory Committee (EBAC) to develop the budget proposal. EBAC includes representatives of sports groups, industry and other interested parties and provides valuable input on the department budget. Public input will be gathered at a series of Town Hall meetings throughout the state and through written comments submitted to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission. Department staff will present a draft of the proposed 2017-19 Agency Request Budget (ARB) at the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission meeting in Bandon on April 22, 2016. The Commission will have the opportunity to approve the Agency Request Budget on June 9, 2016. The Department will submit the Agency Request Budget to the Governor on September 1, 2016. ODFW’s 2017-19 budget will ultimately be decided by the 2016 Legislature.
