Support for Oregon Beer Tax Increase Gaining Momentum

Freitag 24. April 2009 von htm

It’s time for major beer companies to pay their fair share. Coming on the heels of positive poll numbers and an endorsement by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, a proposal to raise the Oregon beer tax for the first time in 32 years is attracting more support. Oregon’s beer tax — less than a penny a glass — is effectively the lowest in the country. The House Bill 2461 would raise the tax by 15 cents with revenues going directly toward the prevention and treatment of alcohol and drug abuse. (Source: Join Together, 4/22/09)
