Governor Kitzhaber launches his 4th term…

Governor John Kitzhaber is launching his fourth term as governor with some definite challenges ahead of him. The big one is trying to find money to make good on his promise for all day kindergarten for kids starting in the fall of next year. Kitzhaber will also have to figure something out to restore law enforcement in southwestern Oregon counties. A plan to cut more O & C timber for county revenue enhancements has yet to be worked out by sponsor Senator Ron Wyden. Kitzhaber will also have to contend with an impending tax kicker which will cause a reverse flow of revenue to the state. And there’s ethics issues with First Lady Cylvia Hayes who got torpedoed hard during the campaign.

Lots for Mr. Kitzhaber to wade through over the next four years. More from the Oregonian. Click here.
