The full details of the tax are not out yet and will likely change as the big vote nears. Because we know so little is just one more reason why ramming this tax down our throats in a short period of time with limited public input is undemocratic and just wrong. The Taxpayer Association of Oregon first began fighting this Carbon Tax back in 2015 when it became an issue, we can’t afford to lose right now.
