Quotes

Strangest of all, it closes on the line "Oregon's road to a better future starts with leaders who have a new vision" -- but then fails utterly to tell us what that vision is
As Scott Moore writes over at the Sockeye , "Supporters of the Corporate Kicker for K-12 campaign should take a moment to celebrate. Our victory is a clear example of the power of grassroots campaigns to make Oregon a better place to live."
To its credit, the COST study concedes that comparing total taxes to a broad measure of the economy such as private sector gross state product is "not a clear indicator of the competitiveness of a state's business tax system in terms of attracting new investment."
"The agency record demonstrates that the project would unreasonably interfere with a small but important and and long-standing fishery in the State's waters at the project site."
