Oregon's Raft and Kayak Tax Likely to Drown in Committee

According to Rep. Terry Beyer’s office (House Transportation Committee Chair), they have heard from “a lot of constituents, non-constituents, and even people from Washington” all opposed to Oregon House Bill 3447. It doesn’t sound like it’s going to even get a hearing and will thus drown in Committee.

Word about this potential boater tax travelled quickly through the Oregon and Washington online whitewater communities. Well done!
