NO PROPERTY TAX-NO DIRECT TAX
. NO INCREASE IN AUTO LICENSE FEES
NO INCREASE OF GASOLINE TAX
. Keep these three facta in mind. The present auto license fees and
gasoline tax will pay both the principal and interest on all the bonds
under this amendment, and will yield an annual surplus besides for other
state highway work. No additional taxation of any kind.
FEDERAL FUNDS MUST BE MATCHED
Oregon most bare sufficient Highway-Funds to match Federal apportion
ments or Oregon cannot get the benefit of Federal money for Oregon Roads.
Increasing this constitutional limit is a necessity. Unless limit is increased,
either state roads cannot be completed for many, many years, or must be finished
by direct property taxation. This measure averts direct property tax for state
.highways and makes early completion possible. Let's get the roads built now.

Examine the table carefully. It proves that no property tax ia required and that preaent rates for
