What's next for Oregon?

BY PETER WONG AND STEVE LAW

PHOTO Gov. Ted Kulongoski helped lead efforts in support of Measure 30. The measure’s defeat forces Kulongoski and other lawmakers to stretch government dollars. February 8, 2004 So, Oregon voters killed a major tax increase last week? What else is new? They turned down sales taxes nine out of nine chances since that idea first made the ballot in 1933. They rejected higher income taxes 15 times out of 17 since 1912 and haven’t approved one since 1930, when a proposal squeaked through that also lowered property taxes.

EARLY PUNT ON ED PACKAGE WOULD GIVE SPONSORS BETTER FIELD POSITION

BY THOMAS SHAPLEY

OLYMPIA Now that Gov. Gary Locke has handed the ball on education funding reform to the Legislature, the best thing for lawmakers to do is punt. It's not that that's the right thing to do. It's just that that's what's going to happen, so legislative leadership might as well do it now and give the League of Education Voters as much time as possible to gather signatures and money for an initiative to the people in November. A bid for a new billion- dollar tax in an election year is DOA in a divided state Legislature.

Kudos to Oregon voters

California politicians seeking higher taxes here to deal with the state's budget problem should look to a vote last Tuesday in neighboring Oregon. "Voters trounce Measure 30," read the headline of The Oregonian newspaper. The article reported, "Oregonians buried Measure 30, choosing to balance the budget by spending less, not by paying more."

Walker burnishes credentials as new anti-tax chief

BY BRAD CAIN

Russ Walker has spent the past few days recuperating from bronchitis and from an election campaign that led to the crushing defeat of an $800 million tax hike on Tuesday's ballot. The convalescence has given Walker some time to reflect on his new role as the leader of Oregon's anti-tax movement — a position that's been vacant since the political demise of Bill Sizemore. Walker, head of the Oregon chapter of Citizens for a Sound Economy, was instrumental in putting together the signature-gathering effort and campaign that led to the drubbing of the tax plan.

Sky High

"You never know which mode of governance you'll see from Bush," said Republican Stephen Moore, president of the political action committee Club for Growth, as he mused about the president's $2.4 trillion budget blueprint for fiscal 2005 and the potential for a second term. Some of President Bush's recent actions, including his signing of the omnibus appropriations bill for fiscal 2004 (rife with what some Republicans perceive as wasteful spending), plus revelations about the actual growth in government spending under Bush, and his fanfare about sending astronauts to Mars, are sparking criticism of the president's fiscal stewardship. "Republicans are spending more money than Tip O'Neill ever did," said Moore, referring to the late Democratic House speaker of the Reagan era. "All those things have really hurt Bush in the polls," Moore added. And on top of that, this year's deficit forecast has reached $521 billion.
