Kitzhaber stumps for Sept. 30 special session on PERS, and Taxes

Is $200,000,000.00 in new taxes a Grand Bargain for Oregonians? Is it unthinkable to cut spending without new taxes?
Senate President Peter Courtney issued a statement Wednesday saying he’d work hard to find a way to pass the package, known as the”grand bargain.””I’m going to work as hard as I can to make this work for Oregon and her people,” Courtney said.”There’s a lot at stake. We can have a longer school year and smaller classes. We can have dedicated funding for mental health. It’s not going to be easy. There are no guarantees, but we’re the Oregon Legislature. We can do this.”
