SALEM, OR -- State Representative Mike McLane (R-Powell Butte) will remain Oregon's House Republican leader. He tells KBND News, "I'll serve two more years as the House Republican leader; I've already done that for four years, so I was certainly pleased to continue in that capacity." State GOP lawmakers held a caucus in Salem on Monday. "The Deputy Leader this year will be Greg Baretto from La Grande area, and Jodie Hack, who is a legislator from the Salem area," says McLane. 

 

He believes the upcoming session will be busy. "Oregon has put itself in a very difficult position, because we over-spend. We grew state government beyond the capacity of our economy to sustain it. That was a mistake that the majority party made. We're going to roll up our sleeves and try to right that ship."

 

The session begins February first. McLane expects lawmakers to tackle a transportation and infrastructure improvement package, as well as revenue sources for the projected budget shortfall.
