Part of press release from Senate Republican Office 5-14-07:
Ironic? Must Obtain Permit to Go Out of Business
Last week, Senate Democrats found one aspect of Oregon business they had forgotten to tax, fee or regulate. But don’t worry; they are working hard to remedy their error. If Senate Bill 684 receives the House’s stamp of approval and becomes law, your business will have to obtain a permit to go out of business. No aspect of life or business is safe from the watchful and caring eye of government.
