Opponents of income tax increase seem assured of vote

BY DAVE HOGAN

SALEM -- Opponents of the Legislature's $800 million income tax increase gave elections officials 13 boxes of petition sheets Tuesday that they said contained more than 147,000 signatures -- nearly three times the number they need to put the issue on a special ballot. Petitioners and tax increase supporters agreed that the signature total virtually guarantees a Feb. 3 referendum in which voters will decide whether to overturn the temporary tax increase that lawmakers used to help balance the state budget.

Referendum on tax hike likely

BY James Sinks

SALEM — In order to ask voters to repeal roughly $800 million in new state taxes and fees, foes faced a seemingly daunting task of gathering 50,420 voter signatures in three months this fall. At Tuesday's deadline, they almost tripled that goal and delivered 147,340. Secretary of State Bill Bradbury has until Dec. 9 to determine whether there are enough valid signatures, but political observers say the sheer number of signatures is a virtual guarantee the referendum will qualify for a Feb. 3 ballot.

Anti-tax advocates turn in referendum signatures

SALEM - Opponents of the Legislature's $800 million tax increase turned in 147,000 signatures by their count Tuesday, nearly three times the amount needed to let voters have their say on the tax package. If at least 50,420 of those signatures are declared valid, the tax increase will be blocked until a special Feb. 3 mail election. "We're confident the referendum will qualify for the ballot," petition drive leader Russ Walker said at a news conference before submitting the petitions to the secretary of state's office.

Tax foes must submit petition signatures today

BY BRAD CAIN

Times are still tough in Oregon — and a tax increase will make them even tougher, says Dana Tokarski, a 33-year-old mother of four. “In our family, we have a budget to keep. We would definitely feel any kind of increase in our taxes. It would make a difference,” she said. A movement is under way among Oregon voters to repeal a tax surcharge set to take effect in the spring. The movement began a few months ago, when the Legislature passed the increase, but it has gained momentum in recent weeks because of signs that Oregon’s economy is improving.

SENATE: CSE Key Votes NO on H.R. 1, the “Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003.”

Dear Senator, On behalf of the more than 300,000 members of Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE), I urge you to vote NO on the Conference Report on H.R. 1, the “Medicare Prescription Drug Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003.” In 2020, Medicare’s spiraling costs are projected to eat up 20 percent of all income tax revenue. The current fee-for-service Medicare program is unsustainable, and this proposal will accelerate the Medicare crisis.
