Statements from the Oregon: 2012 ballot measures's race

Says Measures 82 and 83 authorize just one more casino.  

Says "One of the state’s largest governments made charging this tax one of their top priorities just this year."

"Their New York casino deal was called ‘rigged’ and ‘corrupt.’" 

The reason 29 states no longer have a death tax "is that the tax damaged their economic competitiveness."

"This would be the largest casino in the United States."

"This ban will only apply to Oregon commercial fishermen. Washington commercial fishermen would still be allowed to use gillnets on the Columbia River."

Says "Oregon is one of only three states that allow the use of gillnets on inland waters."
