Oregon

Our Oregon 2017 Legislative session is underway! Sen. Brian Boquist is our Chief Sponsor for our COS Senate bill, it's SJM6! We are busy educating legislators, citizens & coalitions!

Our Volunteers and Grassroots are the most important part of COS Oregon! Please contact the Co-State Directors (below) if you would like an update or need help getting involved!

We have grown significantly in Oregon since we began! We have a solid leadership team in place and are continuing to grow our Grassroots supporters! We are grateful for our progress in 2015 & 2016! We are on the MARCH for Liberty in 2017!

Grassroots are the key to victory -- high numbers ensure success. So are you ready to talk to your friends about the Convention of States Project?

Then ask them to sign the petition! (Personalized Supporter Link is below.)

 

Our goal is to find one District Captain in every Oregon state house district. The District Captain's mission is simple: find 100 people in your district willing to contact their state legislators in support of Convention of States legislation next session.

It doesn't take a huge time commitment to make a difference. Five constituent phone calls is often enough to move an issue to the top of a state legislator's priority list. In person meetings are even more effective.

Join our team as a District Captain!

Tax Committee Hearing

ORLegisTaxCommittee.jpg

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

 

Actions Needed:

1) Attend the Committee hearings on Tuesday May 2 at 8:30 am. and Thursday May 4 at 8:30 am. Deborah Lee, Chief of Staff and Jeff Reynolds, Legislative & Media Director from COS Oregon will be attending

a) Video record the hearing if possible.

b) Audio record the hearing if possible.

c) Take notes, get quotes and who said what.

 

2) Contact Governor Brown and your legislators today and protest:

a) the tax hike itself

b) the tactics being used to create this committee in the middle of the session, so the public is unaware

c) The push to increase taxes when Oregon already has record revenue

d) The refusal of the majority party to consider basic cuts and efficiencies in lieu of tax increases.

 

3) Please share this information with your friends.

      a) Forward this email to your friends.

b) Like the Priority Oregon FB page and share it with your friends.

c) Follow Priority Oregon’s twitter feed and share it with your friends.

d) Ask them to sign the Convention Of States petition to our Oregon legislators also, to rein in the size and scope of the Federal government also!

 

It’s time to Drain the Swamp in Salem!

For Liberty!
