Statement by House Speaker Tina Kotek

On Co-chairs’ “Turning Point” Budget Framework


“I want to thank Senator Devlin and Representative Buckley for their hard work in crafting a Co-Chairs' Budget earlier than any in recent memory. 

Their budget provides the state with a path to stability for our schools and other services we all value.

It will be incumbent upon all of us to strive for balance and fairness as we seek to secure the resources necessary to turn the corner together toward a more prosperous Oregon.”
