Is Georgia Really Cutting Spending?

Data recently released in the National Governors Association’s Fiscal Survey of States shows that Georgia’s budget for this year is set to increase spending despite increased revenue from additional taxes and fees levied on its citizens. In 2003, expenditures were estimated at just over $16.1 billion, but plans for 2004 have them increasing $177 million to nearly $16.3 billion. This is an increase in spending, despite rough economic times, additional federal bailout money, and roughly $400 million in tax and fee increases.

BY Helen Dewar

Senate Republicans are cranking up pressure for swift passage of a long-overdue $328 billion government spending bill by warning wavering lawmakers that they could lose thousands of home-state projects and face a freeze on expenditures if they block passage of the measure.

Ballots going out for tax hike referendum

BY BRAD CAIN

With the ballots soon to arrive in voters' mailboxes, the "Yes on 30" campaign has begun running radio ads urging Oregonians to approve the Legislature's $800 million tax hike. The ad features the voice of a Hillsboro woman, Susan Hoffman, whose three sons attend Hillsboro public schools, where the school year was shortened by 17 days last year because of budget cuts. "We've lost great teachers, our classes are getting even bigger, and now we're faced with even more cuts," Hoffman says in the ad.

Measure 30 Voters' Guide

WHAT IT WOULD DO The measure would raise $800 million in various state taxes for the 2003-05 budget. The largest would be a three-year income tax surcharge, but the measure also includes a reduction in the senior citizen medical deduction, an increase in corporate minimum taxes, a reduction in the discount for early payment of property taxes and other provisions. From Our Advertiser The measure, a referendum, is not a repeal of the plan the Legislature passed. A yes vote would enact The tax increase package; a no vote would reject it. WHO'S BEHIND IT

Yes on Measure 30

BY Editorial

Measure 30 is asking a lot of Oregonians. The ballots mailed to voters today seek $800 million in taxes to sustain schools and other public services. It asks for new taxes at a tough time for many families and businesses. Yet the burden would be broadly shared. The typical Oregonian would pay about $81 a year in additional taxes if Measure 30 is approved, according to an analysis by the Oregon Center for Public Policy.

Oppose New Taxes in Arkansas

January 15, 2004 Dear Arkansas State Leaders: We are writing to offer our firm opposition to any plan that would raise taxes on Arkansas residents this year. Raising taxes and pouring more money into a broken public school system will not improve the state’s schools. Rather, unless serious education reforms are undertaken, Arkansas taxpayers will see their money wasted. We urge the Arkansas Legislature and Governor Huckabee to oppose – and vote against (or veto) – any and all tax increases.

Referendum committee hiding backers, says watchdog agency

Money in Politics Research Action Project is questioning sources of funding for the referendum campaign aimed at overturning a $800 million tax increase for the Oregon state budget. Loopholes in Oregon's disclosure laws allowed the campaign to shield much of its funding by reporting totals of in-kind contributions from key allies, said the organization, which is known for its "Follow the Money" research.

Rainier, Clatskanie school districts brace for key vote on Measure 30

BY Venice Buhain

Columbia County voters, along with voters in the rest of the state, will decide whether to confirm or reject the tax hike that the Oregon Legislature used to balance the state's budget through 2005. The election pits those who oppose what they call the "biggest tax increase in Oregon history" with those who fear an 8 or 9 percent cut in next year's local school budgets.
