Calling All Legislators

Here's some news you can use when trying to figure out how NOT to cut services in Oregon. It's quite simple... tax the corporations in our state. This comes from the Oregon Center on Public Policy...

A new study funded by big corporations found that Oregon has the second lowest state
and local business taxes among all states and the District of Columbia and that
businesses get a better deal for the taxes they pay in Oregon than just about anywhere else in the country.

The study's data suggest that Oregon's state and local business taxes are so low
that the state could raise business taxes by $1.6 billion annually and still be
in line with state and local business taxes nationwide, according to OCPP executive
director Charles Sheketoff.
