In addition to critical votes for state lawmakers and Governor, there are five measures on Oregon’s November ballot.
Measure 102 would allow municipal bond revenue to fund privately owned affordable housing. Another attempt to address homelessness and housing problems around the edges, without addressing the core issues.
Measure 103 would ban taxes on groceries. This is preemptive, since there is currently no sales tax in Oregon.
Measure 104 would define what revenues would require the current three-fifths supermajority legislative vote to be increased. It’s the “A Tax is A Tax” measure, seeking to close tricky loopholes Democrats have used to raise revenues with a simple majority vote.
Measure 105 seeks to repeal Oregon’s current sanctuary state law, which has handcuffed our law enforcement officials and contributed to our illegal alien problem.
Measure 106 would ban the use of public funds for abortions, protecting at least some threatened babies in the womb.
Money, property, the sanctity of life, and borders. Very significant issues. We will be addressing each of these in detail over the next couple of weeks, so keep tuned!
