more reason why Oregon is chasing jobs out of the state

ODOT --

under DOT phase 2 plan,effective October 1, 2010 -- for trucks weighing 80,000 pounds, the weight mile taxes will increase 24.5% going from 13.16 cents per mile to 16.3 eight cents per mile.

Certain carriers may elect to pay an annual flat rate fee for reach 100 pounds of declared combined weight of of $7.59 up from $6.10.

and according to the natural resource report phase 3 adds another 25% hike on January 1, 2011 raising both fueling gas taxes about seven cents per gallon at the pump.

Oregon Department of Transportation website says that this bill is "estimated to create thousands of jobs in the next 10 years and sustain the momentum of previous funding bills known as the Oregon transportation investment act."

yes, like the way measures 66 & 67 were supposed to be the cure-all for schools...

Except they miscalculated one little minor detail...

There are so many businesses and individuals that are leaving the state... that there was not enough "sources of revenue" to generate the money that the estimated.

so why should I care if the price for operating a truck goes up?

I can tell you from my own experience that operating a commercial vehicle is not cheap. With the new regulations from the FMCSA and CSA 2010, including new "green" emissions regulations, has already forced numerous companies out of business.

The larger companies that can afford to hang on, are simply going to pass along the increased fees to the consumer.

I tell you, whoever it is that thinks that curing the recession and creating jobs by raising taxes is a complete idiot.

Robin,

You have to read code to know what they really mean. When they say "Investment Act" they really mean additional taxes. When they want to make an "investment in our schools", they really mean that they want to raise taxes for schools.
