Dear Oregon Patriots,
On Thursday last week, the Oregon legislature created a new committee, the Joint Committee on Tax Reform.
It‘s the really “Son of Measure 97” tax hike committee. After a 60% defeat of Measure 97 last fall, there are games afoot in Salem to find new ways to increase revenue, including creating a Revenue (sales) tax on Businesses with revenue over $1 million. This is really a tax increase on every Oregonian.
This committee will hold 2 hearings this week, Tuesday May 2 and Thursday May 4 at 8:30 am.
The committee will not allow public input, but we need to make a strong showing anyway.
This information came to us from Priority Oregon and www.itsreallyjustasalestax.com
