Dear OSCC members and colleagues -
What's Happening (OSCC Political Observations)
By Tuesday, April 9th, all bills need to be voted out of their original committee in order to survive. This is the turning point of the session. Priorities get whittled down and the playing field becomes clearer as extraneous legislation falls by the wayside.
We will know much more on Wednesday morning as committees will work into the evening up until the very last moments on Tuesday evening.
Activity on Major Issues
We want to reiterate the four major tax hikes being pushed by legislative leaders. As of now, all four proposals are serious and viable. Please get familiar with and distribute this infographic. It is the story of the 2019 Oregon legislature.
What is the total biennial cost to the all the tax increases that are now on the table? $5.67 billion.
