Measure 30 tax is balanced


Ballot Measure 30, the plan to balance the state's budget, is fair to Oregonians. It makes sure that big companies like PGE will finally pay much more than $10 a year in their share of corporate income taxes.

Another way the tax is fair is that it is progressive, meaning that those who earn less, pay less. The average Oregon household will pay only $2 to $3 per month more.

Vote "Yes!" on Ballot Measure 30.

Teachers are not government employees. They are the building block for our future.
