State Representative Gene Whisnant has some ideas to help Oregon get out of it's economic slump. Whisnant says he's supporting a bill that would decrease capital gains in Oregon. He says we need more jobs in Oregon, but not more state jobs. “I'm one of the ones that said government, we really can't create jobs; we create public jobs and that takes taxpayer money to pay for those, but what we can do is change the business attitude in Oregon and try to help businesses succeed so they can buy new equipment so they can employ new people and they can expand and help the economy." As for state spending cuts; the Republican lawmaker from Sunriver says he also has a bill that would eliminate any state position that is vacant for six months or longer. He is also pushing for some state government functions being turned over to the private sector.
