Freshman lawmaker Jason Conger of Bend is thrilled that a bill that extends Enterprise Zones in Oregon passed in the House and Senate and is now on it's way to the Governor's desk. Conger says the zones offer an incentive for businesses to re-locate or expand in hard hit areas, and the zones were scheduled to sunset. His bill would push out the sunset date to 2023.  “It was very exciting to have a bill that I made my legislative priorities, that I'd focused on and worked on the entire session finally get thru the Senate without amendment, which means it passed both chambers. And now it’s on its way to the Governor and I am very, very confident that he will sign it. There's no reason he wouldn't. And a lot of effort went into that more than it should've taken frankly, but to get it all the way thru the process was really rewarding and exciting." Conger says Enterprise Zones in Central Oregon have lured in Facebook in Prineville, T-Mobile in Redmond, and Bend Broadband.
