Gov. John Kitzhaber named Mark McMullen Oregon's state economist.

He has been serving as interim state economist since last September.

"Mark's specialized skills will prove invaluable to Oregon's economic forecasting and our planning efforts," Kitzhaber said. He said McMullen will be involved in efforts to streamline state government and "improve our long-range budget planning."
