I think it is time to come up with a new idea rather than cigarette and beer/alcohol taxes. I tend to agree with finally implementing a small sales tax in Oregon. But, I did hear a great idea from a co-worker that I wanted share.
The fee for renewing an Oregon Drivers License is $40 for eight years. Couldn't we consider charging more for this service? I think most people would pay about anything for the priviledge to drive. How about $5 per month instead of $5 per year? At the same time they could increase the license plate fees. This seems far more fair than continually targeting people that enjoy a smoke and a beer.
