It’s an historic session in Salem. We spoke to local Representative Gene Whisnant this morning: “It's going to be very interesting to have a 30-30 House make up. It's also the first time we've had annual sessions and it's also the first time in the history of Oregon that we have a third term Governor." Whisnant says his main push this session is to help the State's economy by cutting spending and making the State more business friendly. He would like to see more privatization in State government and is supporting a cut in capital gains taxes for businesses. Whisnant says right now lawmakers are on recess for two weeks as part of a cost cutting effort. The Session starts back up again on February 1st.
