TOP TEN TRUTHS: #9

TRUTH
The Water Resources Department is sitting on a slush fund of more than $4.3 million. That is more than half of their total two year budget.

FACT
Democrats are proposing a $100 fee on water right holders to collect an additional $16.5 million for the Water Resources Department. Democrats are also pushing $800 million in new taxes on Oregon businesses.

REALITY
Government already has enough money to pay for the priorities that matter most to Oregonians without raising taxes. Click here or go to www.backtobasicsbudget.com to see how we can provide a no-cuts budget for Oregon schools and other key service areas without tax increases.
