Oregon’s economy needs attention

Rep. Dennis Richardson

The 2013 Legislative Session is half over and, with the exception of the small progress made toward approving the reconstruction of the I-5 Columbia River Bridge, there has been no significant legislation to help Oregon be more attractive to job-creating businesses.

Here’s a status report on Oregon’s economy:

Repeatedly, I am frustrated by the lack of vision and courage to meaningfully address Oregon’s economic problems.

Oregon’s urban voters elected the Democratic majority in the House and Senate. As a result, rural Oregon continues to languish in recession. The failure to address Oregon’s lackluster economy is astounding.
