Salem, OR—Governor Kate Brown today called on Congress to vote against tax plans currently before the House and Senate. In a letter
addressed to Oregon's congressional delegation, Governor Brown also detailed how the proposed plans would directly hurt working Oregon families and stated the following:
"I am gravely concerned that political hastiness is being prized over a deliberative and collaborative process... It is clear that Oregon stands to directly be negatively impacted if Congress approves these tax plans. Any tax reform plan should instead be creating opportunities for working Oregonians, and not just for the wealthy and well-connected. It is imperative to me as Governor of our state that I point out the areas in the plans that are potentially harmful to Oregon and conflict with the values of Oregonians."
