DEAD...The Kicker Tax Increase Dies

Wow, busy day at the Oregon Legislature. With lots of back and forth and back room chatter going on the kicker tax (the deal that was "set in stone") increase dies. First some big props to Sens. Ted Ferrioli, Larry George and the entire Republican Senate caucus. Now the best way to get at a Rainy Day fund will be to rewrite the entire package.

More on Taxes in Oregon

The State of Oregon this budget cycle has a 20% increase in General funds and a six billion dollar increase in the all funds budget.  The all funds budget this year will grow to more than 49 billion dollars as compared to 1990 when the State had a 15 billion dollar all funds budget.  That is more than a 200% increase in the past 17 years.

Old laws prevent consumers from saving

I recently came across this great piece on insurance regulations in Florida and wanted to pass it along. It was written by the editorial board of the Tampa Tribune. Florida Should Let The Sun Set On No-Fault Auto Insurance It made sense for Florida to mandate no-fault auto insurance in the mid-1970s when ambulance-chasing lawyers were clogging the courts with fender-bender lawsuits and driving up costs for everyone.

Tennessee Moves Forward With Cable Franchise Reform Legislation

Tennessee took a major step forward in lowering cable bills and improving service with the introduction of SB1933/HB1421, The Competitive Cable and Video Services Act of 2007. If passed, the legislation will eliminate burdensome franchise laws in Tennessee that are blocking increased competition in the video programming (traditional “cable T.V.”) market.

HR 800 and the Democrat plans to strengthen unions

Congress will soon vote on HR 800, the "Card Check Bill" which will make it easier for unions to unionize workers in the private sector. It will eliminate most of the secrecy in union balloting, allowing union intimidation of workers. It's a terrible bill, part of the Democrats' plan to pay back unions for their political support. It will probably pass the House, but I urge you to contact your Representative by Thursday morning and let him know you oppose the measure. On the bright side, President Bush will very likely veto the bill if it passes.

Scorn 'political assassins'

BY PAUL ERICKSON

This week there was amazing news coming out of the Oregon Legislature. After years of gridlock and partisan bickering, Democrats and Republicans reached agreement to raise corporate taxes, build a state rainy day fund and cut estate taxes. Canceling $290 million in corporate kicker tax rebates for this year and placing that money in a new state savings account is the linchpin of this stunning deal.

Freedom Works is wrong to criticize Rep. Betty Komp

BY David Vancil

I want to encourage the members of this community to ignore the hit piece that came out recently against State Rep. Betty Komp. A nameless individual, under the name of "Freedom Works" sent out a mailer maligning Ms. Komp for voting to put the corporate kicker into a rainy-day fund for the state of Oregon. For the six sessions before this one, the Republicans had control and they spent every nickel that came into the state treasury. This year, with Democratic control, there is finally some fiscal responsibility and some planning going on.

Dorchester: The good, the bad, the ugly--the end

I had planned to get up this morning and write my final Dorchester piece before driving back home--but the wi-fi access in my hotel room was just too crappy. So I packed up all my stuff and enjoyed a leisurely drive in the sunshine instead. I'm plunking out this piece from the comfort of my own homey surroundings.
