Oregon Center for Public Policy

The Oregon Center for Public Policy (OCPP) does in-depth research and analysis on budget, tax, and economic issues. Our goal is to improve decision making and generate more opportunities for all Oregonians.

We believe in an economically prosperous Oregon where Oregonians at all income levels have a meaningful opportunity to thrive.

This vision won’t be achieved by accident or by chance. Good public policy is essential.

It will take a just tax system that produces sufficient revenue to pay for needed public investments.

It will take economic policy that ensures that all workers, not just the wealthy few, enjoy the benefits of a growing economy.

It will take smart budgets that prioritize investments in education, health care and other vital public services that protect the vulnerable and create opportunity for all.

We reject the notion that “you’re on your own.” We believe “we’re in this together” when it comes to protecting the vulnerable, educating our children and steering the state’s economy.
