A State Revenue Forecast that is $129 million better than expected for the next biennium could be a sign that our state's economy is turning the corner. It’s still not enough to avoid cuts in many popular state programs.  “There's still going to be cuts, deep cuts, probably in every agency in the state.” State Representative Jason Conger of Bend says the forecast also points out that places like Bend and rural areas in Oregon continue to be hit the hardest. "We kind of got a mixed message in the forecast.  The signs show some promise that the economy is starting to turn a corner, and maybe we are going to see recovery in job creation. Maybe businesses are starting to hire, but even as you say that, families and businesses in Central Oregon and really throughout the state are struggling.” Conger says its going to take some time to see if the economy is going to really kick in again.  And in the next two years, there are still going to be deep cuts in probably every agency in the state.
