BBPDX member Catalyst Law will host a continuation of our discussion about proposed corporate tax changes under consideration in Salem. As our members know, BBPDX creates civic education opportunities for its members while also recognizing that busy entrepreneurs have limited time to “get into the weeds” on public policy issues.
While we recognize that a deeper dive into tax policy isn’t for everyone, we do want to ensure that those members who have concerns or are eager to learn more have the opportunity to do so. Our contract lobbyist will participate in this meeting so he can answer your questions and take your concerns back to Salem. Check out the draft agenda below for more details on what we anticipate for the March 6 gathering.
The legislative process is a messy and non-linear one, and we know that our members have limited time to track the ever-changing dynamics in Salem. We also know that you care about the outcomes and the impact that decisions in Salem have on the communities in which you and your employees live and work. We will continue to keep you as informed as we can and will certainly reach out again when the actual legislation emerges and there are opportunities for you to testify and/or send a letter. Your voices matter.
