Governor plans capital projects
If Gov. Ted Kulongoski has his way, next year's legislative session will leave a lasting mark on Oregon in the form of new education buildings, railway station improvements, emergency radio towers and other construction projects totaling more than $3 billion.
The governor's proposal to borrow heavily to finance all those capital projects also could leave Oregon taxpayers with increased debt for years to come.
"You end up improving the infrastructure, you create jobs, and I think you improve the economy overall," he said. "So I think it's a win, win, win every way you look at it."
Who is going to pay all these government workers salaries when everyone is a government worker? How about get out of the way of private industry which will make it easier on bussiness and create jobs. That's a win win.
