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.

Bipartisan OLF forces build

BY BILL SANDIFER

The circuits are buzzing at the grassroots level among opponents fighting construction of a Navy outlying landing field in Washington County. Despite some acrimony following Gov. Mike Easley's rejection of calls for a special legislative session, there were no signs on Tuesday of a slowdown at ground zero.

The Oregon Tale

BY Editorial

Lost amid Tuesday's Presidential primary results was the encouraging news that Oregon voters had once again defeated a tax increase. Maybe the Democratic candidates should pay attention. Facing a hole in its oversized budget, the Oregon Legislature in August passed an $800 million tax hike, including an income tax surcharge of up to 9% as well as increases in property, business and cigarette levies. Yet despite screams of ominous cuts to health and education, voters in this state that voted for Al Gore in 2002 overruled the legislature by a resounding 60%.

A BIG WASTE OF TIME, MONEY AND CREDIBILITY

BY DAVID REINHARD

No wonder Gov. Ted Kulongoski and the state's tax-hike set did everything they could to keep Measure 30 off the ballot. They had good reason to fear voters.
