  1. This bill is raising taxes in an already overburdened business atmosphere.  This will fall directly on the consumer, who are also voters.  This state doesn't have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem.  Please use last year's budget with this year's revenue and perhaps the legislators will come closer to a balanced budget?

     

     

  2. This is another example of the leftist regime's attempt to circumvent the will and vote of the Oregon Voter!  Gov. Brown and the Democratic controlled Legislature are totally out of control and could care less about the citizen's of Oregon!
