Oregon’s revenue starts to increase

BY CHARLES E. BEGGS

A two-year slide in state revenues — which has forced $1 billion in funding cuts for everything from law enforcement to education — appears to have bottomed out. But experts say that it’s too early to celebrate. “Right now we’re still treading water. But for once we’re saying we see no deficit developing,” said Michael Kennedy, an economist in the state Office of Economic Analysis. Key data show the first significant upswing in tax collections since mid-2001.

Governmental control could hurt patient care

BY Alice Click

WOULD you rather have the government or your doctor prescribing the drugs you need for heart disease and cancer? West Virginia will be forced to use cheaper drugs that are often not as effective as original drugs if Gov. Bob Wise gets the pharmaceutical plan he wants. When the government buys drugs, it must ration them. The Wise plan could be costly and a deadly mistake. - advertisement-

Textbook lawsuit 'silly,' board member says

BY Alicia Gooden

Attorneys from Trial Lawyers for Public Justice said Friday the state’s board of education is forcing publishers to edit textbooks to fit their own religious and political beliefs. The network filed a class-action lawsuit against the State Board of Education Thursday, claiming its November 2001 decision to reject an environmental science textbook for use in public high schools constitutes censorship. The board voted 10 to 5 to reject the book.

Taxes will dominate the political scene this year

BY Richard R. Aguirre

Sex, religion and politics always have ignited fierce debates. But taxes are a far more explosive subject in Oregon nowadays. That is sure to continue for at least another year. Politicians and political activists are ramping up their rhetoric about tax increases, tax cuts, tax reform and the proper level of state government programs and services. An income-tax increase plan approved by the 2003 Oregon Legislature is the subject of intense debate.

Activist group brings money, draws concern

BY STEVE LAW

Citizens for a Sound Economy, a little-known national group, emerged in Oregon during the 1999 legislative session, when it lobbied for a telephone deregulation bill sought by phone monopoly US West. Months later, leaked internal documents revealed the self-described “grass roots” group received $1.25 million from US West in 1998. Investigative reports also showed Citizens for a Sound Economy: •Got $1 million from Philip Morris while opposing cigarette tax hikes. •Took money from Microsoft and lobbied Congress to curtail federal antitrust enforcement.

Russ Walker winces at criticism that his group, Citizens for a Sound Economy, is made up of carpetbaggers sent to Oregon to overturn the 2003 Legislature's $1.2 billion tax increase. After all, the Keizer resident graduated from high school in Central Point, a small community near Medford. He has lived here the past nine years and can point to ancestors who settled in Southern Oregon in 1860.
