Oregon Coastal Notes Newsletter—The Economic Stimulus Package: Will Oregon's Rural Communities Get Their Fair Share? (January 9, 2009)
In this issue of OCZMA's Oregon Coastal Notes Newsletter, OCZMA explores the challenges and opportunities presented by the federal Economic Stimulus Package that will be before Congress in early 2009.
In addition, we touch upon the Governor's Jobs & Transportation Act (JTA) that will before the 2009 Oregon Legislature. The burning issue for Oregon's rural communities is do we have the staff and the discretionary resources to forward infrastructure projects that are "shovel ready"?
The Newsletter also discusses the last meeting of the Oregon Rural Congress which was held in North Bend, Oregon at the Mill Casino on December 5, 2008.
