A bill that extends a popular tool in creating jobs in hard hit areas like Central Oregon is still alive in Salem.  State Representative Jason Conger of Bend says the bill would extend the "Enterprise Zone Program" that was set to go away. His bill would push out the sunset date to 2023. “What it does is allow economic development efforts to use the only effective or certainly the most effective tool to invest in Oregon to relocate here or expand if they're already here.” Conger says Enterprise Zones in Central Oregon have Facebook in Prineville; T-Mobile in Redmond, and Bend Broadband.” His bill made it through the House and he's expected it to get through the Senate soon and be signed by the Governor. Some business leaders in Oregon have been critical of the lack of jobs creating bills this session; Conger says this bill is one of the few that's still alive.
