To make our infrastructure and cyber-security more resilient to natural disasters and cyber attacks we need to provide guidance & funding to state and local agencies to help identify and implement evidence-based prevention strategies such as those from the Oregon Cybersecurity Advisory Council and the 2010 Oregon Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Infrastructure Report Card.
By investing in climate change reduction efforts, infrastructure improvements and more effective forest management, we can reduce the severity of, and be better prepared for, the damaged caused by natural disasters. After a natural disaster occurs, we need to have the mindset that government resources are sometimes delayed and that personal preparation can make the difference between life & death.
1. Corporations should pay, like individuals, a fair share of taxes and fees because they benefit from our well-trained workforce, infrastructure, etc. 2. We must look for ways to reduce our budget and live within our means, especially a swiftly reduction of the PERS deficit. 3. We need to revisit dedicating “kicker revenue” to a savings fund to be utilized during periods of economic downturn, when income tax revenues are lower than needed to cover the increased need for "safety net" services.
