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, "The tourism industry generates $9.2 billion in economic impact in Oregon and supports more than 91,000 jobs".  The agency was created by the Oregon Legislature in 2003, and is funded by a 1% statewide transient lodging tax.
