Bills that would divert half of "Kicker" tax rebates into a "Rainy Day" Fund and cut capital gains taxes hit a snag in the Oregon Legislature.  Both measures made it out of the Senate Finance Committee last week, but Senate President Peter Courtney has ordered the bills be detoured to the Senate Rules Committee. Many bills in the past have been diverted to that Committee, only to meet their demise. But Courtney spokesman Robin Maxey says the Bills were sent to the panel because those lawmakers would be the ones to write the ballot title for the Kicker Bill, which must be approved by voters in order to become law.
