A local candidate running for state office says it could make sense for Oregon to eliminate the corporate kicker and send that money to schools.  Democrat Nathan Hovecamp of Bend is running against incumbent Jason Conger for the District 54 seat.  He says the personal kicker is great, but maybe the state should rethink the corporate rebate.  " I like the idea of getting money back in my pocket. However, I've been learning about the corporate tax kicker and a lot of that money goes to large, out of state corporations.  About 80% of the corporate kicker.”  The Oregon Constitution mandates that the rebate be issued when the calculated revenue for a given biennium exceeds the forecast revenue by at least 2%.  Hovecamp served on the Bend La Pine School Board for four years and eight years on the Bend Planning Commission.  He also taught biology at Central Oregon Community College.
