Oregon Special Session Begins Today
A special session of the legislature is set to convene today, December 14, 2012. Governor John Kitzhaber called the legislature into session to approve a tax incentive program for Nike.
The governor believes the potential economic development benefits are worth the costs associated with a special session.
Nike says it will expand in Oregon and hire at least 500 people if the state will immediately promise not to change the method of calculating its state income taxes.
