Oregon Tourism Commission
The Oregon Tourism Commission, which does business as Travel Oregon, is a semi-independent agency of the government of Oregon based in the state capital of Salem. The agency is run by a nine-member board appointed by the governor, and governs several programs that work to grow the state economy by promoting tourism. Governor John Kitzhaber has said that the tourism industry "is an important part of Oregon's economy that generates nearly $9 billion in the state." The agency was created by the Oregon Legislature in 2003, and is funded by a 1% statewide transient lodging tax.
