Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown released the following statement regarding the May 2019 Revenue Forecast:

“Our state has seen record growth and prosperity , and our economy is humming. Today’s revenue forecast shows a windfall that presents a unique opportunity to protect Oregon’s future. We can do that by making targeted investments that will ensure that when the next downturn comes, Oregonians will have stability in the services they rely on. I expect a substantial portion of these funds to be directed towards paying down our PERS unfunded liability, and further investments to be made in housing, foster care, our state police force, and towards college affordability so that our state’s prosperity is spread across every corner of the state.”
