UFE ACTION ALERT
Dear Friends of UFE in Oregon,
We urge you to vote YES on Measures 66 and 67 during the January 26 special election.
The $733 million raised by these measures will protect the vital public investments that help Oregon prosper and will limit the impact of the state's current economic crisis on those hit the hardest – seniors, children and the unemployed. The measures also serve to make Oregon's upside-down tax system more fair and sustainable.
to see how Oregon's current tax system requires low- and middle-income
people to pay more of their income in taxes than high-income people.
What would Measures 66 & 67 do?
- Measures 66 modestly raises taxes on only the wealthiest 3% of Oregonians. Over 97% of Oregonians will not see a tax increase!
- Measure 67 establishes a $150 minimum tax for most businesses, raises the tax rate on some corporate profits by 1.3 percentage points, and increases certain business filing fees.
For more information about these measures, please see Vote Yes For Oregon.
To support organizations working hard to pass these measures, please see UFE's Tax Fairness Organizing Collaborative members, Tax Fairness Oregon and Our Oregon.
For the sake of the schools & universities, the roads, the seniors, the kids, the unemployed, the police & fire fighters and many others, please take the time to VOTE on January 26th...and vote YES on Measures 66 & 67!
