In today's print edition of The Spokesman-Review, an answer in the candidate questionnaire for the 6th District House seat being vacated by John Ahern was inadvertently cut.
Here is the question and the complete answer from candidate Ben Oakley:
4. Do you support the voter-approved rule that stipulates that the Legislature can only approve a tax increase when each chamber supports the increase with two-thirds majorities? Should the state Constitution be amended to require two-thirds votes to approve tax increases?
Yes, I support the will of the people who have repeatedly asked the Legislature to live within its means by requiring a two-thirds majority to raise taxes. The State’s General Fund has 7.5 percent more revenue this year over last year. We have the resources we need, but must reprioritize where we spend taxpayer dollars. I would also support the constitutional amendment requiring the two-thirds majority to raise taxes. Again, the voters have repeatedly spoken on the issue.
Here is Oakley's complete 15-topic Q&A.
