There are some surprising results from a study that compared Oregon and other state's economic positions. The Deschutes Economic Alliance held a special meeting in Bend yesterday and unveiled the results of the report commissioned by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Oregon ranked number one in terms of higher education efficiency; in other words compared to other states, we spend the least amount of money to produce a person with a college degree. Delore Zimmerman says the speech also gave local business and government leaders tips on ways to attract more jobs to Oregon and the region. One big issue is how regulation is stifling business across the country: “Some of the states have commissions now to take a look at every rule and regulation, every law that's passed and it's impact on jobs. Some of the state's have established thresholds on the impact and if it crosses that threshold they will veto it, or it won't pass." He says many states are also encouraging more regional and streamlined interaction so that businesses don't have to waste as much time dealing with several different agencies.
