State Senator Tim Knopp of Bend says Republicans in the House and Senate plan to prioritize this final stage of session by pushing jobs bills.

He says there are several good ideas in Salem that could add family wage jobs in Oregon- things like giving small businesses the "Nike deal"  - and allowing some logging and wildfire prevention projects in our forests.


"We continue to talk about tax increases when we have 10 percent more money coming in this session- but we haven't done much to help small businesses create more private sector jobs- so we're going to work the rest of this session trying to get some action on that because we need to get Oregonians back to work."


Knopp also supports easier land use laws for new and expanding businesses.
