Will focus on Oregon small businesses and reducing cost drivers on programs.
Mike McLane (R – Powell Butte) filed for re-election yesterday and pledged to work to make Oregon’s government an ally for the state’s small businesses and to control cost drivers for state programs.
“I have two main goals I believe the Oregon Legislature needs to achieve. First, it needs to be an ally for Oregon’s small businesses. Too often, state government can be antagonistic to those who grow our economy.
Second, Oregon needs to control cost drivers in our budget in a mature and thoughtful way so we aren’t just asking Oregon taxpayers to pay more for state programs,” Rep. McLane said. “I am running for re-election to House District 55 to fight for our farms, families and small businesses.”
Rep. McLane was first elected to House District 55 in 2010. After being re-elected in 2012, he was chosen by his House Republican colleagues to serve as the House Republican Leader.Rep.
