The Alliance continues to advocate to defeat Measure 97, a costly and damaging $6 billion proposed tax increase that will be on the November ballot. Measure 97 would create a new 2.5 percent tax on Oregon sales — not profits — of businesses organized as C-Corps, which generate $25 million or more in sales. If passed, Measure 97 would be the largest tax increase in state history, without any guarantee as to how the money will be spent. The nonpartisan Legislative Revenue Office found that the average Oregon household will see their costs increase $600 annually because the tax increase will be passed through to consumers for everyday items like groceries, electricity, gas, insurance and medicine.
