Oregon ballots are due in just three weeks, and the most contentious issue voters will decide is, arguably, Measure 97.

THANKS TO OUR SPONSOR:

This ballot measure would increase taxes on companies with more than $25 million in annual Oregon sales, thus raising $3 billion a year for schools, health care and services for senior citizens.

The campaigns for and against Measure 97 disagree on one basic point: Whether corporations that pay the new tax will pass the cost on to consumers.   Like many voters, OPB senior political reporter Jeff Mapes wonders whether he’ll pay more -- and set out to answer that question.
