No reason at all…
…sez Senator Pridemore.
Nine state senators are working on a proposal that would increase taxes for the state’s wealthiest individuals and corporations, similar to two measures passed this week in Oregon.Right, I mean, correct you are, Senator! I don't know exactly what they'll come up with, but it's hard to imagine anything that would correct some of the notorious regressivity of our state's tax code that I wouldn't support.
The group of lawmakers is considering higher taxes for "the people more able to pay,” says State senator Craig Pridemore (D-49). Citing the Oregon measures, he says, "there is no reason Washington cannot do the same."
The Senator from the 33rd, Karen Keiser, is the only other name I've seen of the nine. Anybody know who else is involved in the discussions?
