Oregon House GOP will unveil 2016 transportation plan at Oregon business summit

SALEM — Speeches by top politicians at a meeting of state business leaders Monday may sound familiar to attendees of this year’s Oregon Leadership Summit. 

That’s because, for the second straight time, lawmakers will focus on the importance of raising money to make a dent in a backlog of work on roads, bridges and other infrastructure to keep up with maintenance amid an influx of drivers on state roads in a booming economy. 

That’s a repeat of what attendees heard nearly a year ago at the summit put on by the Oregon Business Council, a group of CEOs, directors and other business people who work to shape public policy.
