State Representative Gene Whisnant has two bills that are headed to Governor Kitzhaber’s desk for his signature. One bill requires state agencies with 100 or more employees to report the ratio of employees to supervisors. It's hoped it will reduce management overhead. “I had an opportunity to tour the prison at Madras last year and it seems to me there was a lot of management overhead and not enough people guarding prisoners. So I was happy to sign on to this bill.” The other bill allows employees who are victims of harassment to take unpaid leave for a reasonable amount of time.
