State Revenue Forecast is Tepid


The latest revenue forecast in Oregon is mostly flat, and House Republican Leader Mike McLane of Powell Butte says there is alrealy some talk in Salem about raising taxes and fees.  He says budget cuts and PERS reform are better ideas to make the math work.

 

"We're here to get oregonians the services they need and jobs- that's our priority and for those who are trying to do things other than that i'm not going to be supportive of that i'm going to keep beating the drum of private sector jobs." 


Meantime, House Speaker, Democrat Tina Kotek was more optimistic about the report, and says while there is still more work to be done, the stat is seeing a staedy pattern of improvement in the economy.
