Oregon is proposing to kick you when you’re down. COVID-19 has hit the restaurant, food, and beverage industry hard. In order to shore up state coffers, the Oregon Health Authority has released a proposal to raise $293 million by increasing the tax on beer, wine, and cider by 800%. Not staggered, not stepped, but an instant 800% increase. The consequences would be simply devastating. To learn more, see the op-ed by Deschutes Brewery CEO Michael LaLonde addressing this issue.

Now is the time to reach out to your state representatives and nip this proposal in the bud before it becomes a reality.
