Measure is for the people

BY James Aiken

Voting no on Measure 30 does not get the results most Oregonians want. It does get a result that most wealthy individuals, corporations and anti-government individuals will benefit by. It does hurt many individuals and children in our state.

Lawyers Have Reform Plan

From the Charleston Daily Mail, January 23, 2004, Friday Copyright 2004 Charleston Newspapers After hearing the third different insurance reform proposal to emerge in the Legislature this week - this time from a group of trial lawyers and Senate Democrats, many who also are trial lawyers - Senate Minority Leader Vic Sprouse was impressed. "I'm impressed by all the snazzy Italian suits they're all wearing," said the Kanawha County Republican, who'll work to get some of his own proposals for tort reform through the Legislature this session.

Responsible Spending is the Missing Ingredient

While Congress was struggling to pass an $820 billion spending bill, President Bush was preparing to deliver the State of Union. Bush outlined a plan for bolstering the economy that builds on earlier tax cuts while addressing other weaknesses in the economy. Congress, meanwhile, just passed a spending bill that boosts discretionary spending by 9 percent, according to Brian Reidl of the Heritage Foundation. At some point, the propensity of Washington to spend must be reconciled with talk of economic reform. If the president is serious about economic growth, government spending must be contained.

Tax backers raise $529,000 in uphill fight

BY BRAD CAIN

Supporters of the Measure 30 tax hike have raised nearly $530,000 for their campaign to persuade Oregon voters to approve higher taxes to avert state budget cuts. Meanwhile, tax foes who earlier raised $600,000 for the signature drive that forced the tax election said they have collected less than $200,000 for the campaign — and don't plan to raise much more than that. With polls showing the tax hike drawing opposition from a majority of voters, anti-tax leader Russ Walker said, "we're not going to spend money if we don't think we need to."

Bush to propose spending freeze

BY Joseph Curl

President Bush will propose an increase of less than 1 percent for federal programs not related to defense or homeland security, effectively freezing discretionary spending in the next budget, after coming under fire from conservatives to control runaway spending. But the president will propose increasing governmentwide homeland security funding by 9.7 percent in the fiscal 2005 budget, and the military budget is expected to increase by a small amount.

January 23, 2004 Cuts planned for Oregon State Police Forensics Program if Measure 30 fails could diminish law enforcement’s ability to solve crimes and prosecutors’ ability to convict criminals. Evidence wouldn’t be processed in a timely manner, criminals would go uncharged and even the most violent crimes could take longer to solve.

Unions boost drive for tax plan

BY STEVE LAW

A surge of cash contributions from public employee unions is breathing more life into the Measure 30 campaign, enabling a flurry of radio ads to promote the $1.2 billion tax hike on the Feb. 3 ballot. Campaign finance reports filed Thursday show the Yes on 30 coalition raised $413,000 in the past month, with pledges for another $122,000. More than 80 percent came from a handful of public employee unions, while businesses provided a relatively tiny share.
