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

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.

Oregonians soundly defeat tax increase

PORTLAND, Oregon (AP) --Oregon voters resoundingly rejected a proposed $800 million tax hike, turning aside warnings about looming state budget cuts for schools and other key services. With 95 percent of precincts reporting early Wednesday, the measure was failing 59 percent to 41 percent. Rejection of the tax package automatically triggers $544 million in spending cuts on May 1. Political analyst Jim Moore said the vote showed that Oregonians weren't swayed by warnings that schools and other services would suffer big cuts without the tax increase.

GONZALEZ Russ Walker (center), chief petitioner for Measure 30, and Angela Wilhelms (right), campaign manager, react to the first vote tally on the income tax measure Tuesday in Wilsonville. Measure 30 was rejected by Oregon voters in the vote by mail election. Voters sent a clear message to lawmakers Tuesday: Lower our taxes. Oregonians easily overturned the state Legislature’s $1.2 billion tax increase, rejecting the tax referendum by a 3-to-2 margin.

February 3 - SALEM - Oregon voters on Tuesday rejected Measure 30, a compilation of $1.1 billion in new taxes, by an overwhelming margin (60 to 40 percent, at least count). The special election for Measure 30 was a referral of House Bill 2152, the comprehensive tax package passed by the legislature and signed by the governor last fall.
