County prepares to take out ax

BY DON HAMILTON

Multnomah County's income tax proceeds won't be enough to protect some county programs from a new round of state budget cuts. Oregon voters this week resoundingly rejected Measure 30, the Legislature's budget plan. The vote statewide was 59 percent to 41 percent, and even Multnomah County, the most tax-friendly county in Oregon, turned it back 55 percent to 45 percent.

Education plan faces uncertain fate

BY Richard Roesler

OLYMPIA A one-penny sales tax hike, proposed this week by education supporters, would raise $1billion a year for preschool programs, public schools and colleges. The biggest question about the proposal, however, is the one no one can answer: Will voters agree to a billion-dollar tax hike? They should, Gov. Gary Locke said Thursday. "Better education benefits everyone," he said. The League of Education Voters' proposal, he said, gives voters a chance to "take bold action to reap huge rewards."

2004 Washington Freedom Agenda Update

Taxes The League of Education Voters Foundation is expected to release their P-16 plan on February 5th. No details of the plan are known yet but they have been conducting community meetings to get feedback on a proposal that will “better fund and link early childhood education, K-12, and higher education in the state”. The expected revenue source for the project is an increase in the sales tax totaling one billion dollars in NEW revenue. CSE will oppose this effort to raise taxes as we have done successfully in Alabama and Oregon.

Oregon voters reject tax increase

BY Steve Miller

Oregon voters Tuesday turned back a proposed $800 million tax increase that was passed last year by state legislators, which bodes well for opponents of tax increases in several other states, including New Hampshire, Ohio and Nevada. Voters rejected the measure by a 3-2 margin, spurning lawmakers call for more funding for public schools and social services agencies. The tax package's failure automatically triggers $544 million in spending cuts on May 1.
