Why should out-of-state contractors be hired?

Regarding the new Sandy High School, has anyone asked, 'Why, with the high unemployment in Oregon, were some of the trades building the high school awarded to out-of-state contractors?' Is it just the money?

I know my company (small minority owned) bid on the job, and of the three field personnel in the company at the time, two live in the school district (Sandy and Rhododendron) and have had our property taxes go up well over 20 percent to pay for it.

Thank you for your time.
