Big decisions to be made in Salem this year for Oregon’s budget.  Bend Senator Chris Telfer says it's time to change the budgeting process. “I’m drafting legislation to move us away from this current service level approach which just enables bigger and bigger budgets every year. More towards a continued improvement level which is based on performance, which means we are not going to fund something that is not performing, and let's define what performance is.” Telfer says one example is instead of asking how many people received food stamps; we need to ask how many people were able to get off food stamps. Telfer says many in Salem play a shell game with the numbers. She questions the shortfall and says the State will have a $1.4 billion increase in revenue next biennium. She says the practice of calling a reduction in a proposed budget a "cut" is deceptive and has to stop because it's not a true cut in services.
