Governor Kitzhaber's budget plan calls for tapping into state reserves to avoid cutting some state jobs and programs. State Representative Jason Conger believes the Governor needs to agree to an earlier bi-partisan proposal that cuts $28 million, mostly by laying off middle managers and other state employees. The Governor doesn't want the state worker layoffs to be as deep and says agencies could make cuts in other ways.  "I was a little disappointed in the Governor's reaction. And I'm inclined to go back and say: We have to make these cuts; we need this money. We don't want to make further cuts in other programs, so lets find a way to do it."  Kitzhaber wants to spend $13 million from the reserves to prevent the closures of a Salem area prison and other cuts to social programs. Yesterday the Governor made it clear he wants to spend down reserves to balance the budget rather than rely solely on cuts.
