State Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver says he's a “no” vote on any bills that ban studded tires or try to add taxes or fees to users.  Currently, there are three bills that deal with studded tires and their damage to the roads and highways in Oregon.

 

"I'll be opposing those-i don't know- maybe we need to make a geographic restrcition- i hear people driving down the streets in salem and portland with studs and it doesn't make sense...but for people in central oregon it does provide safety and i'll be opposing any fee increase.”

 

Oregon Department of Transportation's Peter Murphy says they see about $40 million to $50 million of damage on our highway system because of studded tires
