This report describes the economic impacts that would result in Oregon’s 4th congressional district if the U.S. Congress were to pass the national THRIVE Act. The 4th district includes the southern half of Oregon’s coastal counties, including Coos, Curry, Douglas, Lance and Benton counties and most of Linn and Josephine counties.
The THRIVE Act was introduced in Congress in April 2021, aiming to “Transform, Heal and Renew by Investing in a Vibrant Economy”—i.e. THRIVE—through a range of investments to rebuild the U.S. economy. For the U.S. economy overall, the THRIVE Act would finance over $1 trillion in investments per year for 10 years in four major areas: clean renewable energy and energy efficiency; infrastructure; agriculture and land restoration; and the care economy, public health and the postal system.
