John Philo with Deschutes County Republicans says they are advising people to vote "no" on the proposals.
"What we determined was this was another tax on local businesses. And I think it's going to affect some folks in a negative way in teh city and county, but especially in BEnd. The city and county will be subjected to an additional cost and that will obviously be passed on to the people that stay here."
Philo belives low income or homeless people who stay in area low budget hotels, especially as main residences, will be hard hit by this increase.
