BRAD WITT WORKS FOR US!
Mindful that the voters sent me to Salem to make their everyday lives better, I have fought for legislation that protects:
Oregonians are healthier because of insurance coverage for cancer screenings, the Prescription Drug Program, mental health parity, and school nutrition standards.
Enhanced funding for Oregon Project Independence enables seniors to remain in their homes while saving taxpayers' dollars by avoiding the high costs of institutionalized care.
Our families and communities are safer because of more state troopers, longer sentences for property and drug crimes and additional circuit court judges.
Regulations have been tightened on payday loans, mortgage foreclosure bailouts and dangerous products that threaten vulnerable Oregonians.
Oregonians have invested in the future prosperity of our state and its students by investing more money in education.
Jobs and the Environment~
Environmental protections have created family-wage jobs, strengthened our economy, and saved both energy and taxes.
By expecting state government to live within its means, the 2008 Legislature produced a general fund balance of $36.5 million, in the face of a $178 million revenue decline.
Following December's devastating storm, I held hearings that culminated in a legislative package that provides relief to individuals and communities adversely impacted by natural disasters.
