Every few weeks we check in with Portland Business Journal editor Rob Smith about some of the big business news in the region. Today’s topics:

  • Camas is looking to seal a deal to bring Fisher Investments (and 800 jobs) to town by offering various tax and business incentives
  • The University of Oregon is starting a letter-writing campaign to get the state legislature to grant it an “institutional governing board” independent of the Oregon University System.
  • Oregon’s $53 million distilling industry has been a big financial boost during the struggling economic recovery

Have you felt the economic impacts of Oregon’s burgeoning distillery scene? Do you live in Camas? What would 800 new jobs in the area do for you? What would be the financial impacts of a more independent UO?
