From the Milwaukie Journal-Sentinel:

Under Doyle’s plan, called “Next Generation Manufacturing,” five existing tax credit programs would be consolidated into an $85 million tax credit program meant to assist companies that are creating jobs and training workers.

Change of heart? The governor spent most of 2007 trying to raise taxes.
