You may want to let folks know about our two most recent reports on Measure
30, one of which was cited in an Oregonian editorial Monday
( link to www.oregonlive.com).

Here's our announcement about them; you may want to download the reports
and print out copies of the one page executive summaries for distribution.

On Sunday, December 21, the OCPP released two economic analyses supporting
a "Yes" vote on Measure 30.

Found at  http://www.ocpp.org/2003/es031221_E.htm - "Preventing
Self-Inflicted Wounds: Voting Yes on Measure 30 is Critical for
Oregon's Economy" dispells the myth that a tax increase is bad for the
economy. The report shows how the failure of Measure 30 would hurt Oregon's
struggling economy.
