Our Oregon Website Funded by PERS has Multi-Billion $$ Sales Tax on Ballot

The measure, backed by Our Oregon, is designed to raised $2.5 billion a year by taxing corporations with Oregon sales over $25 million annually. Our Oregon, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit that gets much of its funding from public employee unions, made small in-kind contributions to related political action committees working on tax increase measures over the course 2015, totaling $150,000. Meanwhile, the business-backed group formed to counteract Our Oregon, called Grow Oregon, is going on the offensive. Grow Oregon Now has begun canvassing businesses and chambers of commerce around the state in an effort to build opposition to the tax hikes.
