"Former Senate President Gene Derfler, (R-Salem) says the way lawmakers spend their staff allowances can be indicative of how they handle other budgets Active lawmakers who returned the most money to the general fund in 2003: Sen. Ted Ferrioli, R-John Day: $8,447."
Baker City Herald, 02/18/04
"The Taxpayer Association of Oregon has awarded State Senator Ted Ferrioli, R-John Day, the 2003 Taxpayer Watchdog Award. Senator Ferrioli is a taxpayer hero for opposing the $1 billion tax hike the politicians tried to pass in the middle of our recession. Sen. Ferrioli was not afraid to ask the tough questions and he was aggressive at investigating government waste. Sen. Ferrioli is a hard worker and a dear friend of Oregon taxpayers."
