The 2011 Oregon Legislature will no doubt play a pivotal role in the future of the state's natural resource industries, including agriculture. There will certainly be Legislative proposals this session that have a significant impact on farmers and ranchers. Oregon Department of Agriculture Director Katy Coba says having a balanced makeup of the Legislature bodes well: "Moderation in political views, how we find the middle ground in the incredible challenges we are facing, how we can move the economy forward, show we minimize impacts to state agency budgets, how we find new ways of doing business, it's all going to require bipartisanship." Coba cautions that the State budget will be the overriding focus in the session, and advises the Ag industry to be aware and active in the State Capitol this session.
