How unfriendly to small business can Oregon get?, by Steve Buckstein, 30 Sep 2003
Commentary on Oregon's rank in a small business index and the governor's response to a citizen petition to repeal a tax increase
"The Small Business Survival Committee just released its 2003 Small Business Survival Index, which ranks states according to how friendly their policies are for small business and entrepreneurship. Oregon falls close to the bottom; only eight states and the District of Columbia are worse. ... Oregon is highly dependent on small business economic activity. Thus, given the state's unfriendly ranking, perhaps it's the governor and tax-and-regulate politicians who need a reality check."
