Commission sends $311 million ODFW budget to Governor’s office

 
July 16, 2010

 

SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission today approved a $311 million budget request for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for the 2011-2013 biennium.

The proposed budget will now be submitted to the Governor who will make the final budget recommendation to the Oregon Legislature.

The budget passed by the Commission anticipates a slight increase in revenue from federal sources; it also outlines possible program cuts that would be made if there are significant reductions in state general and lottery funds.

ODFW gets approximately 7 percent of its revenue from general or lottery funds. The bulk of its operating revenues comes from the sale of hunting and fishing licenses and tags, and from federal programs.

According to Debbie Colbert, ODFW Deputy Director of Administration, the department submitted a budget that preserves core programs and assumes no general fee increases for at least six years.

In other business, the Commission ratified several temporary rules, including one ODFW filed on June 29 that changes the language in Oregon Administrative Rules guiding lethal responses to wolf-livestock depredation.

The Commission is the policy-making body for fish and wildlife issues in Oregon. It meets monthly. The next meeting will be Aug. 6 in Salem.
