The Alliance came to an agreement with one of its longstanding partners, Portland State University, on the withdrawal of the proposed PSU payroll tax. The Alliance has agreed to work with PSU on a strategy to address college affordability in Oregon. A task force of business leaders, including Alliance board chair Mitch Hornecker, has agreed to work on that issue over the next two years. Items under consideration will be advocating for additional state financial aid funding for students attending all seven public universities; fundraising for a scholarship fund under the PSU Foundation; and the potential for a local funding measure to support PSU.
