TECH INDUSTRY CHALLENGES

What Oregon needs to go to the next level


  • Millions of people are projected to relocate to Oregon in the next ten years, and our infrastructure must be improved to handle this influx of new residents.
  • Examples needing attention: schools, transit, land use, regulatory environment, bandwidth and connectivity
  • Attracting more executive-level talent: a relatively high capital gains tax can be a factor in recruiting top c-level talent because most executives are compensated with variable compensation, which is subject to capital gains.
  • A relatively high income tax is also a factor.
