Promises about Taxes on Kitz-O-Meter
Will "reform Oregon’s kicker law (which refunds state surpluses in excess of 2 percent of projected revenues to taxpayers). Before money goes back to taxpayers, it should first fill a reserve fund that will protect Oregonians from service cuts or tax increases during recessions. This is the most immediate way to ensure stable funding for education and other programs in the face of cyclical tax revenues."
Will push capital gains break through the 2011 session.
Will "support an increase in the cigarette tax" if it is proposed and passes through the legislature.
Will veto tax increases if Legislature seeks them to balance 2011-2013 budget
