Johnson Lauds E-mail Campaign

Oregon State 52nd District Representative Mark Johnson says an e-mail campaign advocating for increased funding for K-12 education is the best grassroots efforts he has seen as a legislator.  But whether it will result in change is an open question.  The Ways and Means co-chairs budget number of seven-point-two-three-five billion dollars is not considered enough.  Johnson says they need to get to at least seven-point-five billion to even tread water, and he is frustrated by a continued drop in K-12’s share of the state general fund budget dating back to the 2003-05 biennium.  The Hood River Republican says the education budget is the top discussion point among legislators at this time.
