The Legislative session gets back into full swing today. For the first time in Oregon's history, the House is split right down the middle at 30-30. Republican Representative Gene Whisnant says he hopes this will pave the way for bi-partisan efforts that rein in spending and encourage more private sector job growth. He's encouraged by what he's heard so far from Democratic Governor John Kitzhaber:  “He made a comment that I thought was interesting. That Speaker of the U.S. Congress John Boehner was talking about we got to quit kicking the can down the road and make some tough decisions, and we do. We should've started that last session.” He's also encouraged that Kitzhaber is talking about a current service level budget, which would revert back to the prior budget, adjusting for inflation.
