Foes of Oregon Tax Surcharge Have Signatures to Force Vote on Repeal

SAN FRANCISCO - Opponents of an income tax surcharge that was key to balancing Oregon's current budget announced they have more than enough signatures to force a vote on repealing the surcharge. Challengers marched into the secretary of state's office in Salem with more than 145,000 signatures on Tuesday, the deadline to submit petitions challenging the tax-surcharge bill. Only 50,425 valid signatures are needed to force a Feb. 3 referendum on the tax.
