66 and 67 Have Passed. Now What?

Pete Springer/OPB

After an expensive and often rancorous battle, measures 66 and 67 passed on Tuesday night by a wider margin than expected.

But there are still — there are always! — questions.

First and foremost: Now what? What will these tax measures mean for Oregon? What budget or fiscal measures should the legislature focus on in their upcoming session?

Does this “band-aid,” as some have called these revenue measures, mean that a more wholesale revenue restructuring is less likely?

More personally, what will these new taxes mean for your job, or your business, or the state services you use?

And, as OPB’s political analyst Bill Lunch asked last night, will Oregon’s historic vote have national implications?
