As the nationwide economic expansion enters its sixth year, signs continue to emerge that growth will improve relative to the lackluster rates seen during the recovery to date. In Oregon, the economy has already experienced acceleration in job growth in 2013. Similar to the U.S. as a whole, this was largely due to improvement in housing and the public sector. As a result, more regions of the state began adding jobs. The question becomes: Can the state expect a further increase in the rate of growth? Mark McMullen will address these issues in his presentation including an analysis of economic indicators and expected revenues for the state of Oregon.
