Stand up for Oregon Values this November
Our coalition works year-round to protect Oregon from extremist groups with dangerous agendas. Today, Oregon faces four dangerous statewide measures that threaten our democracy, immigrants, and healthcare.
These are the most urgent issues on Oregon’s 2018 ballot:
Measure 103 would create a permanent tax loophole for industries associated with a misleading definition of “groceries.” It would exempt businesses like restaurants from taxes, yet the measure fails to protect items families rely on, like diapers, soap, and medicine. Measure 103 is completely unnecessary; there is no tax on groceries—and no one is proposing one.
Measure 104 would needlessly expand Oregon’s supermajority requirement beyond just taxes. A supermajority is already required to raise taxes; this measure would only make it more difficult to cut wasteful loopholes and special interest tax breaks. Measure 104 would cause political gridlock in Salem, putting funding for healthcare, schools, and services in jeopardy.
