Salem, Ore --- Measure 104 could define the "bills for raising revenue" definition, when it comes to a "three-fifths legislative majority".

Right now the Oregon Constitution says that "bills for raising revenue" require a "three-fifths legislative majority" of from both the Senate and the House of Representatives. However, the "raising revenue" part is not clearly defined. 

A "Yes" vote would expand the definition to include fees and changes to tax exemptions, deductions, and credits. 

A "No" vote would keep the current law that limits the definition of "raising revenue" to bills that levy or increase taxes. 

According to Ballotpedia, Republican Gubernatorial candidate Knute Buehler supports the measure.
