Sara knows Oregon's greatest resource is its people. That's why she supports economic development that creates good jobs and promotes healthy businesses. She has worked to create policies that encourage the growth of small business, and encourage the creation of the skilled workforce that Oregon's economy needs to grow. She's also worked to cut red tape by successfully sponsoring the largest regulatory streamlining initiative in the nation for the construction industry in 2007. And that's why she is working to ensure that our state invests in critical health care and human service programs that protect our most vulnerable neighbors and help others get back on their feet.
