With Oregon’s budget crisis, some are calling for more scrutiny of those receiving State benefits such as unemployment and food stamps. Governor John Kitzhaber doesn't agree because he says it’s just a product of a poor economy. School advocates say Kitzhaber's budget isn't nearly enough for schools.
