Portland Commissioner Fish against business tax hike

A proposed Portland business tax hike — seeking to raise $9 million for city programming may be on the way out.

From OPB:

In a council work session Tuesday, (Commissioner Nick Fish) said the council has recently asked the business community to shoulder other new costs, due to laws requiring paid sick leave and raising the minimum wage. 

“One of the things that I’m hearing from the community, it’s the straw that breaks the camel’s back syndrome,” he said.
