Rampant inflation over the past year may be hitting pocketbooks hard, but most Oregonians still support rules and regulations that protect the environment over those that prioritize economic development.

That’s according to a recent poll conducted by the Oregon Values and Beliefs Center, a Portland-based nonpartisan group that surveys Oregonians on a range of economic, environmental and social issues.

In a March-April survey, the center found that more than two-thirds of respondents prioritized environmental protection over economic development and job growth.
