Oregon revenue, economic forecast due on Friday
Thursday, August 25, 2011
SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- State lawmakers will get a fresh picture of Oregon's tax collections and economic outlook.
Legislative committees are scheduled to get the quarterly revenue forecast on Friday following a period of relatively flat job growth.
It will be the first forecast of the two-year budget cycle that began last month. It will also be the first since State Economist Tom Potiowsky (puh-TOW'-skee) stepped down to return to Portland State University, where he'll serve as chair of the economics department and director of a new applied economic research center.
Interim State Economist Mark McMullen will give the forecast in Potiowski's place.
