Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown will convene a Special Session of the Oregon Legislature at 8:00 am Monday, May 21, 2018. In a proclamation , Governor Brown urged legislators to act expeditiously to give Oregon's smallest businesses a chance to grow by extending the tax rates that qualified businesses … .

"Oregon's small businesses are the backbone of our thriving statewide economy, but they do not get the same tax break that other businesses were given in 2015," Governor Brown said. "I'm calling a Special Session to stop this unfairness and create a level playing field for Oregon's smallest businesses. It's imperative that the Legislature take action now so that many more small business owners can take advantage of this economic incentive. Fueling the growth of our small businesses will allow them to hire more employees and contribute to strong local economies in communities across the state."

Governor Brown is convening the special session under her authority pursuant to Article V, section 12, of the Oregon Constitution.
