 Speaker Kotek Responds to Economic and Revenue Forecast



Statement from Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek:


“Today’s forecast is great news.  We can go home with a good budget for schools and critical services, but we have the opportunity to do more.   We still have a lot of work to do to truly reinvest in education, and we need to work together to capitalize on this historic opportunity.


We’re seeing good signs for job growth and school funding.  The legislature must act now to ensure we continue to rebuild services and fuel our economic recovery.”
