Money is tight for the State of Oregon and the group that decides where to cut is in Bend today. They are at the OSU Cascades Campus from 4 p.m. to 6 p. m. to hear from the public. In the past, meetings like this have had a big impact to local programs. The powerful "Ways and Means Committee" has been traveling around Oregon to hear from the public in this difficult budgeting time for the State. State Senator Chris Telfer will be at today's meeting and encourages people to come out. She says you can make a difference: “We were there two years ago and OSU-Cascades was on the chopping block. And a lot of people turned out and so we saved OSU-Cascades from being cut from the budget." She says they'll be talking about issues like public safety and potentially dramatic cuts to human services. The meeting is from 4 to 6 p.m. at the OSU-Cascades Campus in Bend.
