It’s legislation aimed at saving money by reducing middle and upper management in state government. The Oregon House today passed the legislation that required state agencies to begin moving toward an 11-1 employee management ratio. The bill, House Bill 2020, requires all agencies with more than 100 employees to review its management to staff ratios as well as the job descriptions for positions. "We can look at ways to make agencies less top heavy during each budget cycle and force them to come together and more efficient."  State Representative Jason Conger of Bend supports the bill. Conger says it would save an estimated $50 million.
