Special Session to derail referendum drive?

The buzz continues that there is a lobby effort to create a Special Legislative Session in September to rework the two massive tax bills into a temporary tax — which is something that was pushed by many business groups earlier this year. If the Democrat-led Legislature went into Special Session they could change those previous bills which would void the referendum petition drive. The pressure must be in response to the tremendous unity in the business community and the rush of petition signatures coming from both volunteers and paid against the tax. Doing such Special Session would be another example of Democrat lawmakers abusing their state power in ways unseen in the history of Oregon.
