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. Kitzhaber says savings can be found in schools by finding efficiencies, such as combining services. He also wants to establish an Education Investment Board to oversee spending on education programs.  Kitzhaber unveiled his budget proposal earlier his week that would close a $3.5 billion budget deficit.
