Examining Oregon's Money Measure: 97
The November election season figured to be anything but dull, but Oregon offers a few extra bits of excitement.
The vote on Ballot Measure 97 is already heating up... Oregon voters will decide on a tax on business income, one that could boost state government revenue substantially.
We begin our examination of issues and candidates in the November election with a roundtable on 97. State Representative Peter Buckley and Shamus Linsky of the Oregon Consumer League speak in support of the measure; Steve Buckstein of Cascade Policy Institute and economist Eric Fruits speak against measure 97.
