Governor Kitzhaber’s Chief of Staff, Curtis Robinhold, was among those testifying before a special committee considering revamping the Income Tax Kicker Law. He told the 4 member panel the money is needed to balance a wobbly budget. He says its bad to be dependent on one source of revenue that creates volatility and jeopardized long term stable funding of key services. In tough economic times, State revenues fluctuate wildly an Oregon schools and health care systems suffer. The money would be put into a Rainy Day Fund. Kicker reform seems to have broad-based support among lawmakers, state employee unions and business groups.
