A follow up on a story we first brought you last week: Oregon State Senator Chris Telfer told us that State agencies appeared to be ignoring the Governor's budget that worked with the money available; not the larger "current service level" budget with a roll-up to account for increasing costs. She says she told the Governor's Office that the agencies were presenting the higher budget to the committees that are going thru the budget process right now. "I met with the Governor's Office; Brian Shipley, and they were not aware of that." She says the Office sent out a memo instructing the agencies not to include a current service level budget and the roll up. She says it's possible the agencies had prepared the larger budgets before Kitzhaber announced his plan, going forward now she says they should all be on the same page.
