BEND, OR -- The head of the Political Action Committee fighting a possible local gas tax is taking issue with the wording of the measure in the voters' pamphlet. Attorney Jeff Eager feels the verbiage is misleading and biased when it says "over 20 cities in Oregon have adopted a motor vehicle fuel tax."

 

Eager admits there are 24 cities that have adopted a local gas tax. But, he says there are 242 cities in the state and that means those 24 are less than 10% of Oregon.

 

Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship plans to hold a hearing on Thursday and expects to make a decision whether to change the wording in the voters pamphlet, within 24 hours.
