2014-2015 Legislative Priorities


Following up on a successful 2013 session, OBA staff and Policy Committee members are hard at work developing future policy initiatives following approval of the 2014 Work Plan in November by the OBA Board of Directors.data:text/mce-internal,

OBA is committed to continuing our efforts to “re-focus the debate” in order to eliminate Oregon’s “Circle of Scarcity” and build a “Circle of Prosperity.”

As we move forward, our focus will shift slightly, while keeping our efforts in line with OBA’s Strategic Plan Pillars. Our effort over the next year will focus on five important steps Oregon can take to grow the economy:

1. Build the Middle Class
2. Restore Rural Jobs
3. Fund and Build Transportation and Infrastructure
4. Invest in Education
5. Public Finance
Watch for future updates about our agenda efforts as our Policy Committees continue their work.
