Cars: Oregon’s 1 billion transportation investment

November 23, 2008 § Leave a comment

Oregon’s governor, Ted Kulongski, proposed more than 1 billion in transportation investment. From the article, that plan would create 2,100 jobs a year in the first five years. On top of that, the plan will also provides $5000 tax credit on electric car purchase.

The proposal itself is not quite tech-news worthy, but when Nissan is mentioned as Oregon’s partner in electric cars, it stresses Oregon’s serious commitment even more.
