How much money does the Legislature have to work with in the 2023-2025 budget?
This Wednesday, May 17, the Office of Economic Analysis will present the June Economic and Revenue Forecast to the House Revenue Committee. The meeting starts at 8 a.m. We care about the Revenue Forecast because it tells Legislators how much money Oregon can allocate for the 2023-2025 biennium.
Legislators will use the information from the Revenue Forecast to make decisions about how much money to put into State Agency Budgets like the Oregon Health Authority, Oregon Department of Education and Oregon Department of Human Services (DD Services) budgets. The forecast also helps Legislators decide how much money can fund other bills too.
After the revenue forecast, things will move quickly as legislators make decisions about budgets and wrap up the session. There are only about seven weeks of session left!
Now is the perfect time to tell your legislators why DD Services matter to you!
