Just got a notification from my state senator listing the ballot measure that he thinks we are going to see in November’s election this year. Thusly:
-Parental notification on abortions
-Restrictions on government use of eminent domain
-limits on campaign contributions
-Ban on the use of credit scores in calculating insurance rates
-Stronger nursing requirements for nursing homes
-Term limits for legislators
-Colorado style spending limits
-Expanded personal tax deductions
-Expanded state prescription program
-Election of judges by district
These are just the state measures. I’m also expecting to see something about a county or regional tax to replace the Multnomah County tax we’ve been saddled with for the last 3 years. Remember, that was a temporary tax.
I see some measures that I’m likely to support, some that I’m sure I won’t, and a few that I’ll definitely need more information on. Let the mayhem begin!
