Oregon legislative leaders are preparing for the 2011 session set to begin in February. House Republican Leader Bruce Hanna thinks Governor-elect Kitzhaber's "Cool Schools" plan is a good idea; hiring local contractors to perform energy saving retrofits on public school buildings and using the cost savings to pay for it. But he would rather see his party's "Main Street Program" get movement. “That had to do more with improving people's home and their businesses and the upside to that is that is creates jobs, and it builds property values which in turn create revenue.” Both Republican and Democratic leaders agree on the top priorities: job creation and an overhaul of government to reduce spending.
