Legislative Updates


Measure 103 Toolkit Now Available

In July, the OSCC Board of Directors voted to support Measure 103 to keep groceries tax free. Measure 103 would prohibit state and local taxes on groceries. If approved, the measure would permanently block taxes on groceries without specific voter approval.


Presentations Available on Measure 104

Over 20 years ago, Oregonians voted to require the legislature to have a 3/5th supermajority vote on any legislation that raises taxes. Since then, legislators have found loopholes that allow for tax increases without the required vote, often calling them fees, assessments, or threatening to reduce critical tax deductions for businesses. Measure 104 closes these loopholes and helps maintain leverage on key issues in Salem.


OSCC Advocacy Update: Help end easy tax hikes

In just a couple of months, Oregonians will be voting on Measure 104, one of the most important issues to ever hit our state. Measure 104 ensures that any legislation that raises revenue requires a three-fifths majority vote. This includes fees or the elimination of tax exemptions, deductions or credits - making it clear that Oregonians are done with politicians working behind closed doors to increase taxes.
