From Oregon Public Broadcasting:
What happens when you put 20 average Oregonians in a room and ask them to spend four days learning the ins and outs of Measure 97?
That may sound like the wonkiest reality show ever, but it actually happened over the weekend at Western Oregon University.
A group of Oregonians selected to represent the state’s diversity wound up narrowly supporting the corporate tax measure by an 11-9 vote. Measure 97 — which for months was known as Initiative Petition 28 — is the most notable issue on the November ballot in Oregon.
