While many of us are agonizing over our holiday budget, State Senator Chris Telfer is thinking about much larger numbers; a state budget in the billions. "We’re not seeing Oregonians go back to work and until we see that we're not seeing the state turn around financially." Telfer, also a CPA,  of Bend says she's already trying to figure out a way that the state can run more efficiently - she'll be pushing legislation that changes their entire approach: "Current statutes drive us to ever increasing budgets called current service level. I'm moving us more towards current improvement level which is more performance based so we're not looking at bigger and bigger budgets all the time, we're looking at better and better performance." Facing the worst recession in decades, she believes if political leaders don't change the way they run the government now, they may never do it. For the upcoming 2 year budget, Telfer explains the State would need to increase spending by almost a 40% in order to keep the same level of services.
