455 Million Reasons to Say "Thank You" to Voters
Today, the interim House and Senate Revenue Committees received a report from the Legislative Revenue Office on the impacts of Measures 66 and 67 (PDF).
The bottom line:
Measure 66, the personal income tax measure, is now expected to bring in $215 million this biennium, and Measure 67, the corporate income tax measure, is now expected to bring in $240 million.
In other words, thanks to Oregon voters we have $455 million in revenue that we otherwise would not have — $455 million to support schools, public safety and health and human services that Oregonians count upon each day.
