A plan to raise taxes of wealthy Oregonians and corporations is opposed by Republican Representative Jason Conger, of Bend.  He believes it will bring some unintended consequences in some areas that are important to the state.  The bill would remove itemized deductions for upper income tax filers; and Conger says that not being able to deduct mortgage interest will hurt the construction industry.  Democratic representative Jules Bailey says the extra $275-million would help schools.  The bill passed the House Revenue Committee and will get a vote in the full House.
