WOUld Raise MllllOll More

League's new Idea
PORTLAND, Ore., May 1$.
(AP) A proposed state income
tax law designed to raise $1,000,'

was approved at a meeting hero
today of-the executive committee
of the Oregon Taxpayers'- equal
isation and conservation league
and state tax commissioners.'
The league also approved ,

amendment which would ereate a
state tax supervising body similar

Plans were announced to sub
mit the Instruments as Initiative
The income tax plan provides
for payments of 1 to 8 per cent
per $1000 on incomes, while the
present law requires only 1 to 6
per cent. The proposed law also
would have the exemptions come
off the tax paid instead of off the
incomes. Exemptions are nearly
the same asjn the proposed new
federal, bill, league officers said
The effect, Earl L. Fisher,
tat ' commissioner, explained, ' "is
as if wo had a 2 per eent mini'
mum tax for single persons and a
2H per cent minimum tax for
married persons.'
