John Kitzhaber: Oregon Business Plan: create jobs & income; reduce poverty

This is the legislative session to ask and answer the tough questions about what it will take to deliver:The Oregon Business Plan, which has guided our work over the past two years, is built on three pillars: creating 25,000 jobs per year through 2020; raising Oregon's personal income levels above the national average by 2020; and reducing Oregon's poverty rate to 10% by 2020. These 3 pillars recognize that private sector job creation is the foundation of an enduring prosperity in every corner of our state.

Jim Huffman: Moratorium on new federal regulations on businesses

In his opening remarks, Huffman wasted no time linking Wyden to Oregon's long-term unemployment problems. "It is no coincidence that during (Wyden's) term, Oregon unemployment is above the national average," Huffman said.

The two went on to outline their plans to foster small businesses in the face of a lousy economy. Huffman said that he believes in a moratorium on new federal regulations on businesses, a payroll tax holiday and an extension of the Bush tax cuts would help small businesses survive the downturn. "I believe small business is the most important employer in this state," he said.

Wyden pointed to his bipartisan work on a bill to help small businesses finance equipment they need to grow and his support of biomass as a job machine that would greatly benefit Southern Oregon. Wyden criticized the Obama administration's lumping biomass in with fossil fuels in terms of pollutants. "(Biomass) is a clean energy source for our state," he said.
