Proposal: Put Oregonians Back to Work in State Forests. Estimated jobs over five years: 2,108.
Details: Increase sustainable harvesting in Oregon State Forests. Require that 95 percent of new growth in timber be harvested. Timber jobs generated under this plan would pay an estimated $41,848 annual salary (per the Depts of Forestry and Employment). Proposal would pump an additional $441 million into the private sector through personal income growth over five years and generate $33 million in new tax revenue over five years (per the Legislative Revenue Office).
