Representative McLane Wants to Change Spending Focus


Oregon freshman Representative Mike McLane from Powell Butte thinks the State has to come up with more ways to cut frivolous spending to fund necessary services. McLane wants to start with the State's ongoing investment in the "drive less, save more" campaign. It tries to persuade people to drive less to save money. “We do have a storm that is going to hit Oregon and it’s a fiscal tornado. We have to prepare for it. The federal government after the next Presidential election is going to cut funding to reduce the deficit and Oregon is going to see need for state services go up and we won't have federal dollars to fall back on.” McLane feels the $2-million spent on the "Drive Less, Save More" program would be better spent on transportation for seniors and people with disabilities.
